We’re keen to hear from local organisations who might want to be part of Local Democracy Week 2017 in Kirklees.
We want to create the conditions in which local democracy will thrive. This means starting with our citizens and with our sense of local identity – with the ground beneath our feet.
We’re holding a special Question Time session on 30th June 2017, and everyone is welcome to send in their questions about local democracy.
We have a selection of practical workshops at our report launch event on 30th June 2017, each hosted by someone who has given evidence to the Kirklees Democracy Commission.
Join us for this special event at the University of Huddersfield to celebrate the publication of our ‘Growing a stronger local democracy’ report.
Read a quick, 10 minute overview of the key themes from our draft report: Growing a stronger local democracy, from the ground up.
The Kirklees Democracy Commission’s draft report will be debated by all Kirklees councillors at a Full Council meeting on Wednesday 10th May 2017.
We’re inviting Kirklees citizens to be the first to hear some of the findings and recommendations of the Kirklees Democracy Commission.
We’ve heard from over 1,000 people about local democracy in Kirklees and beyond, and we’re now deliberating all the evidence.
Here’s an overview of the evidence given to the Kirklees Democracy Commission by Katherine Sladden and Kajal Odedra from Change.org, in an evidence gathering session on 30th August 2016.
