Local Governance Review launched 

The Scottish Government and COSLA have launched a Local Governance Review to find out what changes are needed to encourage more people to be involved in local decision making.

They are now seeking ideas about how they can open up the conversation, or about the type of changes that should be part of the discussion.

The review of local governance was set out in the Scottish Government's 2017-18 programme for government and will be part of the forthcoming Local Democracy Bill.

The government says it will work with councils, community planning partnerships, regional partnerships, businesses, and the third sector to explore what can bring about change.
