Community Empowerment in Scotland

When I first announced on my Twitter account that I was planning to dabble with blogging, @urbaneprofessor made the useful observation that blogs and Twitter go together like roads and signposts. As much as I like that description, I am about to challenge it with my short and lazy blogpost which is more like a tweeted signpost than a meaty blog.  I hope that will be forgiven because the main aim of this blog is to signpost my recent article in the Journal of the Law Society of Scotland, which looks at the Scottish Government’s pre-proposals for urban community empowerment and renewal. If you have any thoughts on that piece or the proposals in general please let me, and (more importantly) the Scottish Government, know.

Update: The Scottish Government has launched a new website, called “Our Great Ideas”, to allow ideas and inspiration to be showcased. Those intimidated by a consultation response (which you should not be, I hasten to add) might find it easier to share something by way of this new web forum.
