NALC adds a new event on working between the tiers to its calendar
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has added a new online event on working between the tiers of local government to its calendar, which takes place on 28 September 2022.
Local (parish and town) councils are not just at the heart of communities but also the first tier of local government. Their actions make a massive difference in the quality of life for residents. Over the last decade, due to changes in the legislative backdrop of localism, working relationships between local government tiers have changed. How principal authorities engage with local councils varies greatly; different drivers often include financial, political and place-based priorities.
There is a need for effective local governance in communities. Local councils are instrumental in sustaining their communities and ensuring the well-being of residents. The pandemic only exacerbated systemic challenges, such as financial restrictions and devolved services. What does this mean for the local council sector? How can we ensure principal authorities engage with local councils on devolution matters? And how can we ensure local councils have the resources to deliver more services?
Join us to learn more about the different frameworks that can facilitate a better connection between local councils and principal authorities and improve local service delivery.
