Our vision for local government is one of a vibrant local democracy, where powers from Westminster and Brussels are devolved to local areas, and citizens have a meaningful vote and real reason to participate in civic and community life
Economic growth offers prosperity to every place, with well-targeted and planned investment in infrastructure, training and housing that leads to jobs and a supply of affordable homes.
Public services focus on preventing problems instead of just picking up the pieces, delivering positive outcomes for people of all ages. Joined up services are built around people and their needs, enhancing the lives of individuals, families and communities and making local areas better places to live.
To support this vision, we will concentrate our activities in seven areas in the year ahead;
- funding for local government
- adult social care and health
- children, education and schools
- inclusive growth, jobs and devolution
- Britain's exit from the EU
- supporting councils.
