Local Government Matters - June 2022


Share

We are publishing this month's edition of Local Government Matters just as the 2022 Local Government Association Annual Conference has drawn to an end.

Despite the depressing economic picture and the ever increasing financial pressures on local authorities, the enthusiasm to continue to deliver the best for residents and businesses was palpable. Being inventive in service delivery and working in collaboration with others were, for us, key themes that emerged from the conference. Our work for local authorities continues to grow and an increasing volume of the work we are doing is around new service delivery models, with collaboration at the heart. This is borne out by our ever expanding local government team.

Victoria Robertson is one of our new partners and she has jointly penned an article in this month's edition on potential changes to the use of data, to allow more freedom and flexibility, following a government consultation. On the theme of service delivery we include a link to our recent webinar and our service delivery report. The Procurement Bill also features in a number of ways and there is a fascinating podcast with Yetunde Dania, the Head of our Birmingham Office, where she discusses the impacts of the murder of George Floyd- 2 years on.

Finally, in Pride month we are absolutely thrilled to be able to say that as a firm we have been recognised by Legal Week's diversity survey as the highest ranking firm in the whole of the UK for LGBTQ+ across our partnership. We are very proud!
