Larger Local Councils Conference 2015: Communities Can
Royal National Hotel
38-51 Bedford Way
NALC’s Larger Local Councils Conference 2015: Communities Can – is NALC's flagship event mainly aimed for larger local (parish and town) councils. The theme of this year’s event is regeneration and the capacity and role that larger town councils have to play in the local economic development of their town centres in a time of economic challenges and opportunities.
There are thousands of communities up and down the country improving the lives of local people and creating positive regeneration with the support and leadership of local councils.
But there are a number of communities still to benefit from such regeneration.
This event will look at what communities and local councils can learn from each other to make a tremendous impact in changing places for the good.
