Democracy: Reclaiming Local Politics
Peter Macfadyen was part of a group of independents who took control of Frome Town Council in 2011. In his words: “We were a bunch of people who’d never done it before, we got into power and we questioned all the rules, took most of them to pieces, and did things very differently.”Based on his experiences Peter wrote a book, and started a movement, called Flatpack Democracy – helping others to follow the same path and refashion the relationship between community levels of council and communities themselves.
