How would you change local public services?

Local people have the best understanding of their key concerns and are often full of great ideas to share them but I feel there is disengagement with Local Councils and a lack of suitable opportunities to get involved.

They could faciliate this by providing a range of spaces to meet and different times for face to face and assisting with transport.

Menu options might include: consistent use of webcasts (some use, mine voted against it), local "Question Time" events as is proposed by Chelmsford Ideas Hub, community radio "phone ins" - all of which to be supported by increased web presence through tweets, facebook and text messages.
