The summer holidays are upon us and perhaps you might have a bit of headspace to think beyond the day-to-day running of your council. But what should you be thinking about? LGiU offers food for thought on some of the meatier, longterm challenges facing local government and wider society – public service transformation, climate change and public trust.
Plus our regular roundup of member-only policy briefings, including school sports and selective licensing, and the best stories from our Daily News service, on poor quality dementia care, public bodies suing eachother over loss of income, Greater Manchester’s transport ambitions, dedicated climate change teachers, and the Government’s failure to set realistic housebuilding targets. And don’t forget to tweet us your town hall holiday snaps to enter our summer #TownHalliday competition!
