Abstract

Improving the quality of public participation in council decision-making is a key part of local government 'modernization' across the UK. This article interrogates the extent to which public participation has developed in Scottish councils. The authors explore the challenges of building both 'consumer' and 'citizenship' consultation processes and the possible tensions between participative forms of governance and improved strategic and corporate management.
