LGiU guidance on improving democratic processes in local government.

Local government has a major role in re-establishing faith in our democratic processes. Between elections, councils can make access to decision-makers and decision-making easier and help citizens see that processes are transparent, fair and deliberative. The LGiU believes that we cannot have sound national democratic processes without both solid and celebrated local democracy. At election time, local government should lead the way in showing how important local elections are and underscore the robustness of our democratic processes.
