Subsidiarity is a central principle. 

By subsidiarity we mean that the most effective decisions are made at the lowest level by the citizens most directly affected by them, provided this is consistent with their resolution. 

Here we are talking about empowering local communities and community groups to change things in their local area for the better, consistent with the vision above.  

Should we introduce the idea of Participative Budgeting?  Will this encourage local communities and neighbourhoods to get more involved.

Subsidiarity is about the Executives relationship with local Councils and Elected Mayors.  What is the level of responsibility and decisions each should have?  How do we ensure that this is a two-way relationship with the maximum understanding and cooperation between the different levels?
