Podcast: What’s new at LGIU – 29 February 2024


Find out what’s new at LGIU – this week, the big story at LGIU is the results of our 2024 State of Local Government Finance survey in England, which has gained vast attention across the sector and the media.

Joining the podcast to tell us all about the surprising results and the wider response so far is Dr Greg Stride, from the LGIU’s Local Democracy Research Centre. During our chat, we introduce a new game called ‘six degrees of local government’. Greg faces the challenge of linking the word ‘coincidence’ back to local government in six connections or less – did he do it? Listen to find out!

We also spotlight three great stories from the world of local government this week and highlight some of the exciting topics and events coming up at LGIU!
