Devolving and delivering
This jointly delivered event on 1 June 2016 from the National Association of Local Councils (NALC and the Local Government Association (LGA) will explore the opportunities devolution presents for principal and local councils to work more collaboratively.
NALC and LGA have consistently made the case for devolution. Now, with several devolution deals established and more in discussion, this event will examine how all tiers of local government can benefit from devolving powers and functions, as well as how services can be improved through closer working.
NALC and LGA will draw on thinking and best practice from across the sector and consider:
The new challenge- what are the potential gains from greater joint working or onward devolution, and what are the barriers to achieving them?
The devolution vision- what thinking is arising from devolution proposals, negotiations and deals in relation to local councils
Showcasing best practice- who is delivering in this way and what are the lessons being learned
Local Leadership- what is the role of local leaders in devolved setting
