As reported in this week's local press Cllr Mike Powell is calling upon the RCT Labour run Council to honour a manifesto pledge to stream its meetings via the Council's web site.
The aim is to make democracy more accessible to residents and hopefully engage them more in what is happening within their council.
Councillor Powell said: "I have spoken to people in my constituency who would love to be given the opportunity to engage in these meetings.
"There is a real lack of public transport to get to the Clydach Vale headquarters, so I think many people would welcome the chance to see these discussions on the web.
"But the council have indicated that if something like this does go ahead, they would only broadcast a selected few things, such as cabinet meetings, where decisions are simply rubber-stamped and usually announced via the press in advance of that happening."
Cardiff Council already broadcast meetings on their website, a measure introduced under the former Welsh Liberal Democrat administration. Councillor Powell says the costs would be minimal and would make the decision making process more transparent.
RCT Council was given a grant of £46,000 from the Welsh Government to enable them to steam meetings and also help community councils to set up websites. As reported to the last Council meeting the Welsh Labour Government then decided to relax the conditions of the grant so they didn't have to broadcast all meetings.
Welsh Liberal Democrat Councillor Powell is concerned that the backtracking is yet another example of the closed door policy that the Labour administration preside over.
"Even though the public can come along to Council meetings it is quite a difficult place for many to get to, and the timing of meetings make it impossible for many. The public have a right to see their elected representatives in action.
"Minutes are published but they are extremely bland and only record decisions not what was said by any one person or what position was taken by individual councillors."
