Strengthening Local Democracy - Focus Groups
This research explores the views of the public to the proposals set out by the Government in the Strengthening Local Democracy
consultation, which explores whether local government has the powers it needs to meet today's challenges.
The overall objective of the study is to gain the views of the general public on proposals outlined in the consultation, in order that a sense of public opinion would inform the Government's response to the consultation.
In particular, it seeks to gather the opinions of the wider public, including harder to reach groups who may not ordinarily have been sufficiently engaged or informed to respond to the proposals.
