Harborough to provide sign language feed for virtual meetings

Harborough District Council has voted to become one of the first local authorities to provide a sign language feed for virtual meetings.

A motion from the Liberal Democrat group leader Phil Knowles won support from across the parties at last week's full council meeting.

Phil told the meeting:

“We have an opportunity here to be groundbreaking. By doing this we can underline our inclusiveness to all members of our community."

The Harborough Mail says the council will investigate other ways to improve access to its remote full council and committee meetings.
