Make local government local

Better resourced local government
Look to devolving power further
Increase local democratic decision making and devolution of budgets

Why the contribution is important

Increasing and improving democratic decision making gives local communities greater control over their lives, whether there is a crisis or not.
Scotland is a very centralised state comparer with European counterparts. Power is remote and is dispensed from on high. More diffuse power structure which works bottom up and includes more people voices from a variety of backgrounds creates a more resilient country.
