Yesterday I attended the Health, Care and Wellbeing Overview and Scrutiny Sub-Committee at County Hall as an observer.
Due to external noise and some speakers having quiet voices both the public and Councillors were unable to hear everything that was said. Indeed Councillor Helen Green had to move seats to hear better.
There is no point holding Committees if those sitting on them and the public are unable to hear what has been said.
For all three Planning Committees a microphone system is used.
I have requested Caroline Lacey, ERYC Chief Executive, to ensure that the microphone system is in use at all committees.
