This chapter aims to determine whether people's good intentions are enough. It looks at the legitimacy the community organisations have to act on behalf of other residents, and how they relate to the wider community. The chapter studies where they are located within the context of other forms of representation and local democracy. Finally, how the community organisations link in with wider bodies is shown.

Keywords:   legitimacy, good intentions, community organisations, forms of representation, local democracy
