Make it informed, inclusive and democratic, please

Accountability

A well-designed decision-making process is central to accountable local government.

If you design a process that ensures all necessary data is provided up front, you will make a more informed decision.

If you design a process that engages the right people, at the right time and in the right way, you will make a more inclusive decision.

And if you design a process that respects the role and obligations of elected officials, you will make a more democratic decision.

Informed, inclusive and democratic decisions lead to better outcomes.

Always bears repeating.
