Specific comments made about this task

Birmingham City Council - 2013-12-18
On a separate site with no link from the main site.

Cheshire East Council - 2014-10-28
I found it very difficult to find any information regarding webcasts on the Cheshire East Website. there were no results relating to my keyword. However, when I did a google search it was at the top of the listing page

Copeland Borough Council - 2014-02-13
Presumably this council doesn't have webcasts of meetings.

Coventry City Council - 2014-02-05
Overall, finding the given task was very easy. On a scale of 1-10, it would be a 10. The steps were near enough straight forward making it easy to navigate and locate it.

Coventry City Council - 2014-02-11
No quick link from council meetings page on the site, you end up having to click on "council meetings" twice to get to it!

Kent County Council - 2014-07-10
Couldn't find an A-Z - not that important as other routes very easy

Lambeth Council - 2014-02-26
This facility isn't available on the site, so wouldn't be able to find it until it is. However search results did bring up relevant information on council meetings.

Liverpool City Council - 2015-01-14
There are no Webcasts currently on the website.

London Borough of Lewisham - 2015-04-14
nothing comes up when i search for a webcast of the last council meeting

Northumberland County Council - 2020-04-16
Easy to view, video is displayed via a Youtube video that is watchable through the NCC website. Along with all the other meetings underneath.

Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea - 2016-07-20
There's a webcast portal which was easy enough to find from a Google search, but no webcasts on it. First two results on the internal search actually looked like spam! Couldn't find the portal at all from navigation, presumably because it's not being used.

Surrey County Council - 2014-02-14
Google came up with three direct hits. Internal search - 1st on list. Three pages of matches which is slight overkill. A to Z: "webcast" in list. "Council meetings" not in list. A lot of chaff in the lists, esp under C. A to Z link moves position as you move through the site - not gt usability really. Navigation - was a bit of a challenge to find the right path. "Your council" page was very link heavy. "Council meetings" was what I was struggling to find.
