Making the reform agenda work: LGiU seminars Spring 2012

What does the government’s reform agenda mean for the work of councils? 2011 was a period of intensive legislating and policy announcements from central government. Much of what was announced has big implications for local authorities and the delivery of public services.
 
So as the dust settles in 2012 how is local government going to implement this reform agenda? The LGiU is running a series of seminars that will focus on some of the key areas of concern for local government – changes to the benefits systemreform of the planning process, the new Health and Social Care Acthousingthe local economy and making digital communications work.
 
The LGiU has a track record of running well-regarded seminars for councillors and local government officers. This spring series of events will provide a practical and informative combination of expert speakers, group discussion and best practice dissemination.
