ALL-PARTY PARLIAMENTARY GROUP ON LOCAL DEMOCRACY
12 July 2021 — 11.10 - 12.00
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Local Democracy is pleased to be hosting an online meeting to hear from (parish and town) councils about levelling up. The government has made it a key priority to address regional inequality in the UK by levelling up underperforming and left-behind parts of the UK. But what really is levelling up, and what does it mean for the rest of the country? This roundtable provides a timely opportunity for local councils to share with the APPG their understanding of levelling up, what the role of local councils should be and what support is required, and how the government’s Levelling Up White Paper due later in the year can address this.
