Description/Abstract

This report presents findings from a 2005 survey of councillors, officers and stakeholders in 40 local authorities and is part of the ongoing evaluation of new council constitutions. The survey was designed to see whether the new arrangements were perceived to have achieved their objectives. Overwhelmingly, respondents express the view that the new arrangements provide a structure for effective political leadership while the evidence on the new arrangements having enhanced democratic legitimacy is less convincing. Encouragingly, the majority of officers and stakeholders (and about 50 per cent of councillors) are confident that checks and balances are in place to support transparent decision-making
