Local (parish and town) council are no longer restricted to buying water services from the regional monopoly. The largest competitive water retail market in the world has opened for business, bringing the biggest change in the water sector since privatisation.
Responding to the general election result Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of the National Association of Local Councils, said:
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is calling for more local councils across England to get involved in Volunteers’ Week, which is running from 1 June - 7 June 2017.
National Association of Local Councils (NALC) would argue that the focus of today’s debates in local government tends to be around regional mayors and combined authorities and this is wrong headed because this is about creating new centres of power, which are distant from local communities.
