Cotterill on the Council

Proposal no. 2

11.21.08 | Comment?

Here’s the second project proposal (draft 1 with a few small gaps still in) that I’m looking to submit to the North West Innovation Fund for Elected Members (up to £5,000 funding per project funded).

This one’s a bit more technocratic than the first one, and focuses on streamlining IT and organisational systems for councillor casework in such a way that

a) things get done better;

b) citizens get valid engagement with thier Council while councillors get to ‘quality assure’ that engagement where desired;

c) trust in local democracy is enhanced with a fair wind. 

Comments, as ever, welcome.

To go forward it first has to be approved by the Chief Executive and/or the Conservative Council leader of West Lancashire District Council.  I’ve sent it today. 

The first one, submitted last week, is the subject of, I hope, an upcoming meeting with the Chief Executive.

 Well, you’ve got to try.
