Creation of a Neighborhood Council of Mas Lluí and Roses-Castellbell
Define in a participatory manner the composition, structure, operation, regulation and its powers
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
The City Council initiates a participatory process for the creation of a Neighborhood Council for Mas Lluí and Roses Castellbell, which allows improving the channels of participation and relationship of the neighbors in matters that affect the daily life of the neighborhood.
The Neighborhood Council is a permanent territorial participation body. The intention is to create a structure that brings together different social sectors of the neighborhood (citizens and entities) with the aim of dealing with and influencing the assessment and decision-making on territorial issues that affect all the residents of Mas Lluí.
The purpose of the process is:
- Define in a participatory way the composition (individual citizenship, entities and associations, technicians and politicians), the structure (work commissions, technical secretariat, etc.), the operation (frequency, number of calls, etc.), the regulations and their attributions of this participation body of a permanent nature (informing, consulting, deciding, dealing with upcoming issues, self-assessment, etc.).
- Ensure a plural, integrative, flexible and operational structure, based on the opinions gathered during the deliberative process.
- To generate a global and collective awareness of the neighborhood and the city, beyond particularist discourses, and to encourage greater co-responsibility of the citizens in the issues that affect the territory.
- Prepare, based on the results derived from the deliberative process, a consensual report of results that incorporates a proposal of regulation of operation of the District Council, as well as the basic indications that will have to guide the process of creation of the organ.
