Voters will be able to watch Bolton councillors debate in the council chamber after it was agreed that cameras would be installed at a cost of £100,000.
Labour’s council leader rubbed-stamped the decision at his August meeting.
The cameras will record council meetings to improve “transparency” in council proceedings.
It will also cost £8,000 to keep them switched on for the six council meetings per year.
The meetings will be streamed on the Bolton Council website.
