NALC Chief Executive's bulletin - LGA

Meeting with Local Government Association chairman

This week the NALC chair, Cllr Sue Baxter, held her latest meeting with the chairman of the Local Government Association (LGA), Cllr James Jamieson. Issues covered included remote meetings, civility and respect in public life, levelling up and devolution, sector-led improvement and neighbourhood planning. They both recognised the importance of NALC and LGA – and principal councils and county associations at a local level – continuing to working closely together on these and other important issues and making joint representations to the government where we can.

LGA report on principal councils working with local councils

In Sue Baxters meeting with Cllr Jamieson, Sue also welcomed the LGA's recently published report A delivery framework to support parish and town councils, please check it out. The report presents a framework for principal councils looking to support local (parish and town) councils to play an increased role in local service delivery and place-shaping. While aimed at principal councils, the research was also steered by interviews and discussions with representatives of the local council sector. Please send your feedback on the report to policycomms@nalc.gov.uk.
