The February edition of LGiU’s c’llr magazine is now available. As regular readers will know each edition focuses a particular topic and this month it is The budget challenge.
Over the course of eight articles we look at local government finances, including contributions from: Cllr Philipa Roe, Leader of Westminster City Council; and Cllr Sir Albert Bore, Leader of Birmingham City Council. There is also a handy double page spread on 10 things you need to know about the local government finance system.
Elsewhere in the magazine there are articles about the New Homes Bonus; we talk to Cllr Sir Merrick Cockell, Leader of Kensington and Chelsea and the Leader of Stoke City Council, Cllr Mohammed Pervez about the problems with census data; and and article about the ‘Blue Alliance’ between Staffordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire Councils.
And of course there is more, so do download the PDF and take a look. Councils who are members of the LGiU will receive copies of the magazine for their councillors.
