NLGN and PwC are delighted to invite you to the launch of our report exploring how to harness devolution to drive growth and reform public services.
Devolution is at the forefront of the local government landscape. It offers vast opportunities to move past a focus on managing spending cuts to investing in success. It also presents new challenges in terms of managing relationships with central government, other local authorities, and wider public sector partners. The report sets out recommendations on how to work together as a whole system and make devolution work to ensure a sustainable future. It will consider what future powers and capabilities are needed to ensure the ongoing success of combined authorities.
The report draws on an innovative gaming approach to devolution and contains input from some of the most creative thinkers and leading figures in local government. The launch will include responses from:
Chief Executive, Essex County Council
Devolution Driver, PwC
Editor, The Municipal Journal
