Welcome to Wyre Forest District Council webcasting
Welcome to our webcasts
You can now watch council meetings from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else where internet access is available.
As well as live council meetings you will also be able to view previous meetings.
What is a webcast?
The council has installed cameras in the council chamber to broadcast planning, cabinet, council and licensing meetings on a regular basis. Live and recorded meetings will be available on this site. We are particularly keen to receive people’s views on the quality and usefulness of the webcasts.
Webcasting is the broadcast of video and audio over the internet - put simply it is like watching TV but through an internet connection. By webcasting meetings, the council aims to provide local residents who cannot attend meetings with an opportunity to play a part in the local democratic process, and to get involved in the decisions affecting their lives.

Webcasts are only archived for a period of 6 months after the meeting.
