        Section 12.1. There will need to be some guidelines or framework for deciding what areas of responsibility are devolved to each level of local government otherwise there will ensue a never ending battle between lower level and higher level of local government about who decides what. Subsidiarity means as much decision making as possible is made at the lowest level and each level requires an adequate level of funding to be able to execute its responsibilities properly
