Warwickshire Scrutiny on YouTube

Something a bit different from this week’s Communities Overview and Scrutiny meeting – Councillor John Whitehouse, the Chair of the Committee was filmed by one of our Communications team (just on an iPod touch – no expensive specialist equipment necessary these days!) talking about the issues that were looked at by Councillors in the meeting.

We’ll be posting these short video summaries following most of our Scrutiny Committees from now on to give people a bit of an idea of the kind of work that goes on in these meetings. As a team we’re very aware that a lot of this kind of stuff is somewhat of a mystery to a lot of people out there but we’re trying to change that.

If you like the idea or have some suggested improvements – just let us know by leaving a comment below.

County Council Meeting – 27th March 2012

Council

The County Council will be meeting next Tuesday 27th March to debate and discuss the County’s finances; including how we can plan our spending over the next two years and how we can help grow the Coventry and Warwickshire economy and reduce unemployment. The Warwickshire Observatory have today released the latest unemployment figures on their blog, which can be found here.

Here’s what is on the agenda for the meeting next Tuesday:

  • Medium Term Financial Plan
  • Treasury Management Strategy 2012/13
  • Coventry and Warwickshire Growing Places Fund
  • Notice of Motion – Internet Access for Young People in Libraries
  • Allocation of Capital Receipts from Surplus Property Disposals ( this is an exempt report, and won’t be open to the public)

The vast majority meeting is open to the public, and will start at 10.00am at Shire Hall, Warwick.

The papers for the meeting can be downloaded here: Council 27th March 2012
