This week’s LGiU Fortnightly sees the return of Andrew Walker, who has been away finishing his PhD thesis over the summer. Andrew and Ingrid run through LGiU’s latest briefings, covering special educational needs and disabilities, housing, and prison funding. They also discuss the political uncertainties of Brexit and Parliament’s prorogation, as well as the party conferences which are taking place throughout September. Finally, we hear about what local government is doing to tackle climate change, including car-free days in London, Edinburgh, Bristol and Cardiff.
Plus, our regular roundup of Daily News, including AirBnB short-term lets and council policy, green belt commuter villages, and Dutch-style roundabouts!
