Two Tier Futures

Kindly supported by:


NLGN is delighted to invite you to the launch of our latest research report ‘Two Tier Futures’ featuring a keynote address from Hilary Benn MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

There is a growing recognition that two tier local government is not sustainable in much of the country. With top down reorganisation off the table, counties and districts urgently need to consider how new ways of working can contribute to meeting the challenge of a punishing new wave of cuts from 2015 onwards.

This report will make the case that collaboration between tiers of local government is the way forward for the sector and highlights the many opportunities for the tiers to work together to improve customer service, manage demand and develop new preventative services. ‘Two Tier Futures’ also contains recommendations for both Central and Local government to ensure an integrated future.

Join NLGN as we launch this dynamic research and discuss the key findings with contributions from the report authors Simon Parker, Director of NLGN, Claire Mansfield, Senior Researcher and representatives from case study areas.

All attendees will receive a free copy of the report.
