Members of the public will be able to listen to all the discussion and debate that takes place at meetings of the new Mid & East Antrim Borough Council.

It was announced at the outset of the ‘Super’ authority’s first ever monthly meeting in The Braid, last Wednesday night, that proceedings were being recorded and councillors were encouraged by the Mayor, Cllr Billy Ashe, to use their microphones when called to speak.

The audio recordings can subsequently be listened to by interested members of the public via council offices or the council website.
