This briefing sets out the policy priorities councils would want adopted by each of the political parties in their manifestos in order to help local government better support their communities and deliver on the challenges facing the nation.


All parts of local government – counties, districts, London Boroughs, metropolitan areas and unitary authorities – have a key role helping to generate economic growth, build homes with relevant services and infrastructure, strengthen communities, and protect vulnerable people in all parts of the country. Our offer to the next government is that, as the most efficient part of the public sector, local government provides the strong local leadership and support that allows communities, individuals and businesses to flourish. This briefing sets out the policy priorities councils would want adopted by each of the political parties in their manifestos in order to help local government better support their communities and deliver on the challenges facing the nation.
