Steven Tuck drew my attention to this remarkable piece of openness on the part of Kirklees Council. Like other local authorities they pop their press releases online, but unlike other local authorities they give the public space to say what they think. Have a look at this example here, it is so simple it is powerful.
I’m not alone in thinking this. When I mentioned this on twitter this morning I got these responses:
abeeken @podnosh Brave and bold – excellent engagement! I like it; shows Kirklees has balls.
supercoolkp @podnosh Well I never. So open – and it must make folk in Kirklees really feel listened to. I wish BCC would do it – what are the chances?!
getgood @podnosh Wow, that’s something.
