LGA - The provisional 2017/18 local government finance settlement: confirming the offer to councils

Government funding measures will force more than two thirds of councils to find millions more in savings than expected to plug funding gaps in 2017/18, the Local Government Association warns today.

The LGA is calling for government to reverse unexpected reductions in New Homes Bonus (NHB) payments to councils in 2017/18 and find genuinely new money to properly fund social care.

The provisional Local Government Finance Settlement, published in December, failed to provide any additional new government funding for councils in 2017/18.

LGA - Business Plan December 2016/November 2017

Britain's exit from the EU means that we are reshaping the way our country is run. Our vision is one of a rejuvenated local democracy, where power from Westminster and from the EU is significantly devolved to local level and citizens feel they have a meaningful vote and real reason to participate in civic life and their communities.

LA Forum - Engaging For a Low Carbon Transition: The 2˚C business model

This report shows that a 2-degree business model is less risky than ‘business-as-usual’. It also destroys less shareholder value during periods of low oil prices. And if the greater risk of a ‘business-as-usual’ approach is taken in to account, the 2-degree model would deliver superior value for shareholders unless oil prices were to match or beat historic highs.
