Starting with Wednesday’s (March 25) board meeting, members of the press and public will be able to access the meetings live, online. 

A spokesperson for the Combined Authority said: “We had a successful test on Monday, and so members of the public and press can observe the meetings in real-time by following the link we have published. 

“When people join the meeting, they will be prompted to enter a name. This will be visible to others so they may want to use a first name only or another signifier.”

These are only temporary arrangements pending a change in the law on virtual local government meetings. 

Metro Mayor, James Palmer and his fellow councillors have not held a public meeting since the outbreak of the coronavirus. 

Following government guidelines, all council meetings have been suspended or cancelled, but with individual members able to access video-linked technology it is possible for these meetings to re-commence.
