News: Development Councils – A Proposal For A New System Of Local Democracy In Scotland

Supporting people to become active citizens is a key focus for Moray Wellbeing Hub. We’d love to know your thoughts on this proposal from the Common Weal.

“Scotland has the worst degree of local democracy in Europe. To correct this, Scotland should create a new tier of local democracy at the community level.

Each area should then be represented by a Development Council, elected by every member of the community aged 16 or above.”
