There’s an app for that
3rd December 2012
... Comments is a free app that allows users to subscribe to a local authority and to specific Council committees within that authority, having the agendas and minutes automatically downloaded to their device whenever they have an internet connection. All of Richmond Council’s committees are now on the app so that residents can keep up with any aspect of the organisation that interests them. Once downloaded the documents are then available to view and annotate whether or not the user is online.

Cllr Pamela Fleming, Cabinet Member for Community, Business and Culture, said, “In the age of YouTube and Facebook, residents are more and more engaged by electronic means of communication and require faster and more accurate results.

“Through the app, Richmond Council has made minutes and agendas from any of our committee meetings available to our residents from the moment they are published.

“We are incredibly lucky in this borough to have such and engaged and passionate community, that want to keep informed, to know what their Council are doing, and to keep on top of decisions being made as they happen. This app will help them do exactly that.”

As well as the app, a number of Council meetings are streamed live online and the video files held on system. Visit to find out more.

To find the app, search the iPad or Android app stores and download it for free.
