The Kirklees Democracy Commission Working Group are overseeing our practical work to grow a stronger local democracy. The group meets every six weeks and you can follow our progress live via webcast or twitter.
We will be discussing work to improve our content about council decision-making and work to involve our young citizens in local democracy. We’ll also talk about the Innovation in Democracy programme, which is an opportunity for 8 to 10 councils to test out Citizens’ Assemblies.
