Welwyn Hatfield Council is set to upgrade its streaming service after agreeing to use a new provider.

The new facilities will offer several upgraded features and help to engage a greater number of residents in decision making, the local authority said.

The service will now cost around £14k each year – up from the previous annual price of £7,980.

Explaining the changes, a spokeswoman said: “It will be made clear to viewers who is speaking, with links to councillor information.

“People will be able to skip to specific agenda items that interest them, and electronic voting will display on-screen.

“Our new supplier is the largest in the local government sector and we hope the full range of new features will go live this autumn.”

A Development Management Committee (DMC) meeting this evening (June 12) will not be available online because of the switch.

However, all other DMC, Full Council and Local Plan meetings will continue to be streamed during the changeover.
