Transparency and openness should be the fundamental principle behind everything councils and other local government bodies do, and new rights have been introduced by the Openness of Local Government Bodies 2014, enabling members of the public to know how decisions are made. All policies and procedures of Upwood and the Raveleys Parish Council demonstrate full compliance with these regulations and the parish council embraces an open media policy which encourages engagement with the press.
The regulations allow members of the public including citizens and professional journalists to:
- use modern technology and communication methods such as filming, audio-recording, blogging and tweeting to report the proceedings of the meetings of their councils and other local government bodies
- see information relating to significant decisions made outside meetings by officers acting under a general or specific delegated power.
The government's "Plain English Guide" provides practical information that will help the public to exercise their new rights under the Regulations, and explain what they should expect from their councils and other local government bodies.
