Party conference season isn’t ALL about Westminster politics. LGiU brings you the local government view from Brighton, Liverpool and Birmingham.
From Theresa May lifting the HRA cap to Emily Maitlis challenging Liz Truss on council finances, big words from Andrew Gwynne on community empowerment and Lib Dem plans to tackle one-party-state councils, there was a lot for councils to chew on.
Plus an update of recent LGiU projects and our regular roundup of news from the past two weeks.
Hosted by Jen Glover and Ingrid Koehler, featuring Jonathan Carr-West.
