Abstract

English local authorities are expected to promote ‘effective community engagement’. The ways in which they can do this are various, ranging from the provision of information to direct involvement in decision-making. This paper focuses on the impact of adopting different types of community engagement strategy on local democracy. Two principal types of community engagement strategy are identified: consumerist and participatory, and their potential for encouraging effective engagement is discussed, before their implications for local democracy are modelled. The paper argues that the relative priority accorded to different types of community engagement are likely to cause local democracy to evolve towards consumer, stakeholder, radical or citizen-centred democracy.
