Rural Councillors - Call for Evidence extended to 8 June
We've extended the deadline for submissions to our Call for Evidence on 'Strengthening the role of rural councillors' until 8 June 2007.
We’re keen to hear from rural councillors and parish clerks, community groups, local partnerships, council officials, business associations and everyone with ideas and experience they want to share.
We're also pleased to receive visual and audio material, for example photographs, recordings, film footage, to support your submission.
We'll use the information we gather to:
- identify and promote a range of specific policy and delivery solutions to Government and key organisations,
- help locally elected councillors make full use of their existing powers and new reponsibilities coming through the Local Government White Paper
- help rural communities have more influence over local decisions.
