Facing the Future
A new report and survey by Localis says that councils will have to deliver better services for less money, and that a salami-slicing, business as usual approach will not suffice. Councils must think radically about how they support and empower their residents and introduce new service delivery models, with further support from Government over initiatives such as community budgets.
This is among the key conclusions from of a survey conducted by Localis, the local government and localist think-tank. It was completed by over a quarter of all council Finance Directors across England, the results of which form the basis of a new short report released today by Localis.
