ISBN: 9781788519243

A short set of questions to support a conversation with people about local communities deciding their own future.

Executive Summary

An overview of the Scottish Government's commitment to making further reforms to the way Scotland is governed, focusing on local decision-making, not on behalf of communities, but by communities themselves.

People are asked to consider a short set of questions about communities being more in control of those decisions which matter most to them. Questions include whether this is a good idea in the first place, how it could be made to work in practice, and also invites people to tell us anything that is important for us to know before we go any further.
