Civic Manifesto: Localism for Real

We face a crisis of civic engagement. This is a symptom of the frustration people feel as power is taken away from communities and they are subject to tokenistic consultation. We need to give all citizens opportunities to actively shape the future of their place and to give communities the powers they need to enable their town and city centres to prosper”.

Civic Voice is calling for:

  • Every local authority to produce a Place Improvement Strategy
  • Policies to support collaborative planning for major development and local plans
  • Policies to enable local authorities to control use classes and permitted development rights according to local need
