View programme   //  Elections results


The first major local council conference after the closure of the consultation on referendum principles. These proposals labelled as “a centralist sledgehammer to crack a nut” by the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) which will “damage communities and local services as well as undermining the role of local councillors”. This event will also look at how local councils are changing places with other parts of the public sector because of the austerity, the financial climate and onward devolution.The opportunities for local councils to fill that vacuum of community leadership and service delivery have never been greater but there are challenges that come with this. The event will look to plot a way forward on all of this.
