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.
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.'
