Welsh Local Government Association chair and Flintshire CC leader Tom Middlehurst has called on local authorities to break the public apathy towards local democracy. Middlehurst claimed that he was concerned by the cynicism exhibited in the low turnout to vote in the Welsh assembly referendum.

He was quoted in The Daily Post (1 Oct, p16): 'We need urgently to begin a thorough programme of democratic renewal that fully connects people with every form of government that serves them.' We must involve people more and ensure that they value local democracy. The crusade we are launching will transform the way we operate so there will be more openness and real public participation in our new forms of government.'
