Can localism thrive at the current rate of pay of LA Councillors or is centralisation inevitable
Is remuneration of Councillors enough to support a real move towards localism. How can younger minds be attracted when they can't afford to do the job. This is particularly an issue in rural areas. I commented on an earlier suggestion (re Land Reform) below and I would suggest that some of the issues around non domestic rates that I mentioned in my comment are potentially applicable here.
