GAINING SOCIAL VALUE THROUGH GOOD CAPITAL INVESTMENT
GAINING SOCIAL VALUE THROUGH GOOD CAPITAL INVESTMENT

Capital investment is at the top of the political agenda locally and nationally as the government seeks new ways to create jobs and prosperity. While the abolition of the RDAs has reduced some sources of capital spending, it has also had the effect of giving local government a renewed role at the forefront of national investment. This NLGN project is focusing on how capital investment is being used to harness long-term social value for councils and their communities whilst reducing financial pressure on council revenues.
