The Scottish Government has launched the next phase of its Local Governance Review, inviting people to join a conversation called ‘Democracy Matters’www.gov.scot/democracymatters

The campaign asks five key questions about how decisions should be made at a more local level. It asks whether communities, of place or identity, should have more control of decisions and what those might be. It also asks how this should look and what new or existing decision-making processes could be used.

The Local Governance Review was launched earlier in the year aims to find out what changes are needed to encourage a more local, participatory and inclusive democracy in Scotland.

The review encourages people to hold conversations in their communities to discuss Democracy Matters and includes a community engagement fund where groups can apply for £100 – £300 to help make conversations happen. They have also published guidance about how the discussion might work and how it could be facilitated.

Glasgow Airport has launched a 13-week public consultation seeking feedback on proposals to modernise the airspace currently used by aircraft to fly to and from the airport.

The airspace change proposals form part of the UK Future Airspace Strategy (FAS), an industry-wide initiative driven by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

A key element of the FAS involves removing ground-based navigation aids across the UK and using state-of-the-art satellite navigation systems. The ground-based navigation aid which Glasgow Airport currently uses to guide aircraft to and from the airfield will be decommissioned in 2019.

Further information on the airspace consultation, including how to respond, can be found here. The deadline for submissions is Friday 13 April 2018

Glasgow City Council is once again inviting people to take part in budget conversations to discuss the financial challenge facing the city.  They want to continue that discussion with you and have launched an online consultation and they will be holding three events for invited representatives of community groups.

The Council is expected to have to save around £33 million during the next financial year following the settlement figures from the Scottish Government. They are already working on ways to close that spending gap and the conversations in previous budgets have been important in identifying areas where the Council can do things differently, what services people value and what role the community can play.
