Live coverage of Council byelection result on webcast tonight

Conservative-controlled Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is providing live coverage of the counting and result for today's Council byelection in Leek East Ward. You can see it on their website from 9pm.

Cllr Stephen Ellis, Cabinet Member for Planning, Development and Property Services says:

"We’re not aware of any other Council that has done this previously. At Staffordshire Moorlands, we broadcast all of our Council and Committee meetings live to the Internet.  All meeting broadcasts are
also recorded and therefore capable of repeated viewing. We continue to build up an impressive online archive of all our meetings. This new technology is proving very popular with one of our planning meetings securing over 300 hits – far more than would ever attend a planning meeting."

"Staffordshire Moorlands District Council has just won a Beacon award for its pioneering work in connection with ‘digital inclusion’."
