LGIU Fortnightly 30 October: The Location of Power


In this week’s episode of LGIU Fortnightly, Andrew Walker and Ingrid Koehler take a deep dive into the latest pillar in our Post-Covid Councils series, the Location of Power. Andrew sets out the key arguments of his new report ‘Power down to level up: resilient place-shaping for a post-Covid world’, plus we hear an extract from our webinar – coinciding with the report launch – in which Dr Patrick Diamond (Senior Lecturer, Queen Mary University) and Jessie Hamshar (Director of Strategy and Engagement, Cornwall Council) discuss the importance of trust, engagement and decentralisation as we move towards recovery. Finally, Andrew and Ingrid look ahead to the upcoming launch of the Trust and Governance pillar and update listeners on our other recent work including new briefings and blogs, as well as the announcement of our Cllr Awards shortlist.
