Have your say

We live in a democracy!

It’s no good complaining and sitting back saying it’s someone else’s fault. We live in a democracy and there are many ways that we as individuals can influence the way our local and national government and services are run. When considering new legislation or changes to services they supply central and local government are obliged to ask the opinion of people who may be affected. Opinions are generally sought by way of “consultation” exercises and there are usually several going on at any time. Take a look at list of current LCC consultations >>
