Meeting webcasts

To keep Nelsonians up-to-date on our activities, we are filming some of our meetings.  You will know which meetings are being filmed as there will be a sign clearly stating this before you enter into the meeting room.  We will broadcast the footage live online and a link to recordings will be available on our website.

The filming will cover elected members as they speak and debate at the meeting. The filming will also include anyone speaking at public forum.

When filming meetings, we may collect, store and publish personal information about people attending the meetings. This is because personal information can include a person’s voice or image. 

Where we do collect personal information (by filming a person’s face or voice), we will collect, store and publish that personal information in accordance with our privacy policy on this page: 

  • Purpose: we are filming meetings as it in the public interest to have transparent and accessible decision-making at public meetings.
  • The intended recipients of the information are the general public who can access the footage via a link on our website. In other words, the footage will be publicly available. 
  • The name and address of the agency that is collecting the information; and the agency that will hold the information is Nelson City Council, through its agent Tandem Studios.

If you have any questions or concerns on the filmed footage, please contact

Nelson City Council
PO Box 645 
Nelson 7040

This applies only to Nelson City Council meeting footage, not to footage taken by any other entity (including the media).
