In this article, a normative model to improve the role of public participation in local government is proposed. It is envisaged that this model could be implemented by municipalities throughout South Africa. The model attempts to expound a set of basic points of departure within a specific normative framework that could be employed for the purpose of enhanced public participation in local government. The model possesses inherent potential for further research. Components of model construction are reviewed with emphasis on the proposed normative model for improved public participation in local government.
