Six councillors from Surrey Heath Borough Council took part in the very first eSurgery which was broadcast live over the internet.
The eSurgery was hosted on the new social network Blab and it is thought to be a world first of the use of this technology by politicians in this way.
Councillors Dan Adams, David Allen, Paul Deach, Josephine & Edward Hawkins and Oliver Lewis took part and it is hoped that other councillors will also participate in the future.
The idea is a very simple one and that is to make local politicians more visible to the communities they serve and make them accessible in a more convenient way for internet enabled residents.
The first eSurgery was for the councillors involved to discuss the concept to pave way for a pilot which will run very soon and will be announced on the Residents Network in due course.
All broadcasts will be recorded and made available like the one below for those who could not watch live.
