The LGA is a politically balanced organisation, with each of the political groups allocated places throughout the structure in proportion to the number of people their councillors represent.
Brexit cannot leave local areas facing huge financial uncertainty as a result of lost regional aid funding. This funding has been used to create jobs, support small and medium enterprises, deliver skills training, invest in critical transport and boost inclusive growth from Cornwall to Northumberland and Cumbria to Kent.
The clock is already ticking for the Government to set out a plan to replace this funding into the next decade and beyond. Failing to do so will cost jobs and impact most on our poorest citizens.
