Local government in England: What do you think?
The Political and Constitutional Reform Committee is currently exploring the possibility of putting the relationship between central and local government into writing. They’ve written a draft code for this, which covers a range of issues about the powers a local government should have.
They’re keen to find out what the public thinks about local government and what powers central government should have over local councils, and they’ve launched a public consultation. Unlock Democracy will be submitting evidence evidence to the consultation, and we’d like to best represent your views in what we say.
We’ve launched a web survey to gather your views on the relationship between local and central government. Do you have two minutes to participate?
If you’d like to participate in the consultation yourself, you can find more information about it here, with a copy of the draft code. Make sure you’ve sent the Committee your responses by Monday 5th November.
