The Independent Group represents councillors in England and Wales who are Independent or of a political affiliation outside of Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat. It provides a voice at the national level and works within the cross-party Local Government Association (LGA) to ensure that the values and interests of its members are promoted.
In this week’s Bulletin Cllr Marianne Overton welcomes new members, outlines the LGA’s recent decision to acknowledge a climate change emergency and launches our Next Generation Programme for Aspiring Leaders.
