Residents of villages, settlements and towns can submit to the local council any local initiatives on any issues which belong to the responsibilities of local self-government. The procedure for the submission of local initiatives to the local council can be determined by the representative body of local self-government or by the charter of the hromada (article 9 of the Law of Ukraine “On Local Self-Government in Ukraine”).

Representative local self-government body – elected body (council) consisting of deputies which is entitled to represent the interests of a hromada and adopt decisions on its behalf.

Apart from the charter of a hromada, the procedure for the submission of local initiative can be regulated by the procedure on the use of the hromada members’ right to raise local initiatives.
