400 view meeting
Around 400 people tuned it to watch a council meeting from the comfort of their own homes thanks to a new web cam scheme.
Bath and North East Somerset Council has launched a £5,000 pilot project to encourage more members of the public to get involved with local democracy.
People can either watch live on their computers or can catch up after the meeting, when they are able to skip to the part they are interested in. It went live for the first time at a cabinet meeting last week and will be used for the next six months at such meetings.
Council leader Councillor Paul Crossley (Lib Dem, Southdown) said: "The cabinet wants to make democracy more accessible to all, including giving the opportunity for residents across Bath and north east Somerset to participate from the comfort of their own homes. Key issues affecting local communities are debated regularly."
