A “commission” is a group of people who have been entrusted to do something. The Kirklees Democracy Commission has been brought together by Kirklees Council to gather evidence about our local democracy and make recommendations based on what we find out.
The Democracy Commission is a cross-party group of Kirklees councillors and we have an independent chair from the University of Huddersfield. Our work is supported by several other organisations. Members of Kirklees Youth Council have participated in every stage of our work.
