Background Information: The Protocol on Media Relations was adopted several years ago. It has not been amended subsequently to reflect the changes in modern media operations, and the way it tightly defines council processes may not be appropriate for the rapidly evolving media landscape the council now operates in. It is appropriate to review the protocol and modernise it to ensure that the council has sufficient flexibility to manage its communications in a professional manner in this changing landscape and to adapt to further changes in the future.
