Rewiring Public Services is an ambitious campaign which provides much-needed solutions to how we can deliver public services within an ever-tightening fiscal environment.
There is no such thing as the English economy. It is made up of city regions, county economies and sub-regional labour markets. It is not simply north/south. As more levers of economic growth are devolved to the counties and city regions, we stand ready to create local treasuries and work with our business partners to provide the incentive for growth and choice and unleash the full potential of the local economy to increase national wealth.
Local government is one of the few parts of the public service that uses its resources to drive growth. It needs full financial autonomy to maximise those assets to invest in homes and development to support growth.
