For our members, 2016/17 was another difficult one with unprecedented challenges on finance, housing and social care. Councils are also facing opportunities and challenges from Britain’s exit from the European Union.
But the challenges also bring with them once in a generation opportunities. Sound, democratically-elected local leadership will be more important than ever to secure the best outcomes for residents, communities and the country.
It is in this context that over the last year, we have been working with councils to ensure they’re heard by all parts of Government.
