We started our work by talking with our citizens about local democracy. From July to August 2016 we held a series of five Local democracy roadshow events across Kirklees (in Batley, Dewsbury and Huddersfield).
We invited citizens to tell us what would make their everyday experience of local democracy better. We asked what would make it easier for people to participate in local decision-making, and what would encourage you to feel involved.
