Annal Nayyar reports -LGA plans new model for local government

The Local Government Association is set to launch a radical reform plan for councils that will outline new ways of allocating public funding and providing services, chair Sir Merrick Cockell has revealed

In an interview with Public Finance, Cockell set out details of the LGA’s attempt to develop a ‘new model’ for local government, which will be launched at its annual conference in July.

In February and March, the group examined five key issues for local government at ten regional road shows across England. Areas under the spotlight included the financial sustainability of local government, as well as the future of adult social care services and welfare reform. The group also examined what additional powers could be devolved to create an ‘independent’ local government sector, as well as what councils can do to boost economic growth.
