As power is devolved, how can place leadership ensure local prosperity?

The NLGN annual conference is one of the most important local government events of the year. Here we bring together leading figures in councils and local public services to look to our shared future. We will be examining the vital role of local partnerships in promoting the economic and social development of places. How can councils and combined authorities ensure their places thrive?

This agenda has never been more important as the Northern Powerhouse takes off and many other Combined Authorities and city deals follow on.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker will be Melanie Dawes, Permanent Secretary for the Department of Communities and Local Government.

With leading speakers from across politics, public services and wider partnerships, this is the ideal opportunity to set the future blue print for local government. NLGN’s annual conference will seek to bolster local ambitions and help our high-level audience plan for their future.

Held in London’s glorious Guildhall (2 minutes’ walk from Bank Station) this will be an idea opportunity to network with peers and share the best and brightest ideas for our devolved settlement.
