Making Participation Happen
Authority Participation Strategy Workshops Toolkit
Jul 27, 2021
Although constrained, Authorities are well-positioned to devise and implement meaningful public participation strategies. In order for a strategy to be effective, strong internal networks across departments as well as good external networks of relationships with diverse stakeholders and communities are required.
First published in August 2020, the toolkit includes:
- ROLES DECK: Foundational roles required to develop a public participation strategy within a local authority
- ROOT CONSIDERATIONS DECK: Opportunities and constraints and consideration at the outset of any work by a local authority officer towards developing a public participation strategy.
- SWOT WORKSHOP DECK: Template for fostering dialogue and collaboration needed to uncover and strengthen the roots and unlock the resources and roles which will be used in the development of a public participation strategy.
- RESOURCES DECK: Essential ingredients for success in developing a public participation strategy in a local authority.
