Local Government is going through a period of significant change. There has been a significant and ongoing reduction in funding for local government since 2010 and this is requiring a fundamental redesign of how authorities are organised, and services are delivered. The coalition government passed the Localism Act that promoted local decision making and abolished most ring-fenced grants.

There is uncertainty about local government finance moving forward because of the Fair Funding Review and ‘Brexit’.
In the current climate of financial challenges and uncertainty, a working knowledge of local authority finance will put you and your colleagues in a position of advantage.
This seminar is a useful introduction and overview of this important subject and covers revenue and capital finance, the changes that the government is making and how local authorities can respond to this challenging agenda.

The session is accompanied by a very useful 100-page book that is designed for reference after the session entitled: “All You Want to Know About Local Government Finance 2019”
