Deliver a Community Rights Act

Deliver a Community Rights Act

We need a Community Rights Act to facilitate citizens’ participation in political, economic, social, and cultural life. Community rights will encourage new approaches to citizen engagement and copper-fasten collective civic participation in public life, providing rights to inform, to challenge, to nominate, to own and buy land and property assets. Community rights legislation will augment and legitimise community representation to work alongside central and local government in planning & policy making environments. The legislation which regulates spatial and community planning covering the built environment, the economy, community service can be amended to incorporate community rights and work better for the people it is there to benefit. A Community Rights Act will establish the legal standards for community participative democracy. It will strengthen democratic decision making and move from discretionary citizen participation to compulsory engagement.
