For the first time a public meeting can be viewed on the Lewes DC website. In a unique project, local public agencies and local company, UKCouncil, have joined forces to make a recent flood meeting widely available.

The public meeting, at which the Environment Agency unveiled its options for flood defence, was jointly hosted by Lewes DC, East Sussex CC, the Environment Agency, East Sussex Fire Brigade, Sussex Police and Lewes Town Council.

Lynn Levy, business development manager at UK Council said: 'We're a local company and our main focus is to make people aware of what's going in their local environment. The internet is an ideal place for people to see the public meeting, both for those who were not able to attend, and also for those who want to see again the discussions that took place.'

Cllr Ann de Vecchi, leader of Lewes DC said: 'I am very excited that we are using this innovative way of getting across information to the public. Seeing people discuss real issues on the web makes the debate more immediate, and we can see and hear exactly what was said.'

How to access the webcast:

Go the Lewes DC website.

Go to the Webcast section where they see the webcast box and

archives. Choose Lewes Flood Meeting.

Once the selection has been made you can view the webcast. There are

fast forward buttons on the bottom of the screen that enable the viewer to

pick what they want to see and go back and revisit any parts that they want
