Public Engagement in Local Government

This study examined whether public engagement undertaken by councils in Wales enables citizens to help shape what local government does.

We concluded that Welsh councils are involved in a great deal of public engagement, some of which enables citizens to help shape services. Public engagement activity 
frequently lacks strategic direction and co-ordination; feedback is rarely provided to the public and monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness of the public engagement are weak.
