Governance Decision-Making Tool
Stakeholders are all the people who may have interests in, or are affected by, the decisions made in a designated area. These might include local residents, business owners, landowners, members of local government, and organisations such as NGOs and government agencies. When establishing or reviewing a governance structure, there is a need to ensure that a wide range of perspectives are represented, but also to ensure that decision-making processes are clear and effective. Exactly who is to represented within a governance structure will be influenced by the overall aims of the area, and also has important implications for the organisational structure.
