In this episode of LGiU Fortnightly, Jonathan Carr-West and Ingrid Koehler explore the work LGiU has carried out over the past few weeks, and run through our latest briefings.
We speak to Kim Fellows of LGiU Scotland about the role we play across the border, plus an interview with Dr Seán Ó’Riordáin of LGiU Ireland about Irish local government and the legislation surrounding metro mayors. We also hear about our upcoming serial podcast looking at Children’s Services, local government elections in May and an update on our homelessness commission.
Plus highlights from our member-only Daily News service including the complexities of counting rough sleepers, 3D zebra crossings and the surge of Victorian diseases.
