Share your ideas as part of 'Democracy Matters' Local Governance Review

The Scottish Government has launched the next phase of its Local Governance Review, inviting people to join a conversation called 'Democracy Matters'.    

The campaign asks five key questions about how decisions should be made at a more local level. It asks whether communities, of place or identity, should have more control of decisions and what those might be. It also asks how this should look and what new or existing decision-making processes could be used. 

The Local Governance Review was launched earlier in the year aims to find out what changes are needed to encourage a more local, participatory and inclusive democracy in Scotland.
