A new Magna Carta? This year's Culture, tourism and sport conference is taking place at a pivotal point for not just the services we lead, but for our democracy and whole political system.
Support for tourism infrastructure is vital, and investment in culture is a proven regeneration tool.
A vibrant local sports scene improves public health, economic development and community cohesion. We are helping councils build a lasting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
We are helping councils tackle their challenges through:
- securing continued support for the Future Libraries programme
- helping councils to realise a 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy that delivers wider benefits for the whole country
- supporting councils who are pioneering new and more efficient ways of delivering heritage services and share the lessons widely
- promoting digital inclusion and supporting the superfast broadband pilot areas.
