Many councils are currently receiving calls for changes to the names of estates and streets and the removal of statues – and objections to such proposals. Building cohesive communities lies at the core of councils’ day-to-day business and as leaders of place, shaping and supporting a local identity and helping to develop relationships and engagement between different parts of the local community are key to achieving this.
The Local Government Association (LGA) is providing this Model Member Code of Conduct for consultation as part of its work on supporting the sector to continue to aspire to high standards of leadership and performance.
This report outlines the results of a Local Government Association (LGA) public poll on resident satisfaction with councils’ response to COVID-19. It follows a similar format to the LGA’s regular resident satisfaction polling, which has been conducted every three to four months since 2012.
The LGA has developed this simple tool to support Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) chairs/chairmen move into the next stage of COVID-19. Please adapt it to your local circumstances over the forthcoming period.
