Memorandum by Horsham District Council
The Local Government Association has advised me that
the Select Committee is looking for evidence of innovatory approaches
to citizen participation in Government. My Council has over the
last 12 months conducted two separate public participation approaches
and I have included with this letter the two public reports on
The first report is on the Citizens Jury conducted
by the Council's Planning Department looking at the questions
relating to a new settlement within the Council's area. The second
report looks at a Committee of Inquiry looking at the Councils
role with regard to health in the widest context. Both reports
look at the process and the outcomes of both approaches.
My Council would welcome the opportunity to
discuss the merits and benefits of both these approaches and the
actions taken since their conclusions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
