Oldham residents are invited to get online and join the next full council meeting in the comfort of their own homes.
The meeting will be streamed live on Oldham Council’s website at www.oldham.gov.uk from 5.45pm on Wednesday, April 17.
The earlier than normal start is to enable members to be addressed by Tony Lloyd, the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester. Mr Lloyd will address members from 5.45pm in a 30-minute slot.
Normal council proceedings will start at about 6.15pm with a 20-minute ‘Open Council’ session that enables members of the public to put questions directly to cabinet members. Residents can take part in a variety of ways and submit their questions via social media networks Facebook and Twitter, or email. Questions must be submitted before 5.45pm on April 17 and will be asked at the meeting on a first-come, first-served basis.
Live internet streaming allows residents to watch the entire meeting live from laptops and other digital devices. Audio from the meeting will also be broadcast live on Oldham Community Radio (99.7fm).
