Democracy Matters consultation

Democracy Matters consultation

The Democracy Matters phase two consultation provides another opportunity for as many voices as possible to be heard to help shape future local democratic systems and processes. You can respond as an individual, an organisation or you can hold a conversation and respond as a community.

You can read the consultation document here and there is also an easy-read version and a Gaelic translation.

Phase two of Democracy Matters focuses on six key themes and questions:

  • Powers
  • Representation
  • Accountability and Participation
  • Setting local boundaries and priorities
  • Standards, reources and relationships
  • Nurturing community capacities
