Medway Council will set aside a row of seats at Full Council meetings for citizen journalists as it values the work they do scrutinising the authority.stgeorgechat

The council’s Full Council meetings take place at the St George’s Centre in Chatham.

Each time they are held around six citizen journalists come along to live Tweet as the meeting happens before them.

To recognise the fact that citizen journalists play an important part in local democracy, Medway wishes to make it easier for them.

And now it will make the row available (usually at the front) to try and ensure they have a place.

The council has already Tweeted this message to announce this news and will ask citizen journalists on the day to tweet us to say they are coming – as spaces will be limited.

Cllr Alan Jarrett, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Finance, said: “We are very keen to engage with people and to help them play a part in local democracy.

“Our council meetings do get a number of people turning up in the public gallery including citizen journalists who spend the night Tweeting about what is being said.

“It is important that councils are open and accountable and we want to help people who give up their time to tell their followers about our meetings.”

The row of seats will usually be at the front of the council’s public gallery (unless there is a specific reason that others may need accommodating there.)

As spaces are limited, Medway Council is asking those who wish to use the citizen journalists’ row on the night of Full Council meetings to please Tweet us @medway_council on the day.
