On Tuesday I was delighted to speak at the launch of a new selection of essays on the distinctive contribution of District Councils, which the New Local Government Network published this week.
The collection is a positive statement of potential and sets out some interesting approaches to future challenges. I hope it will prove helpful to politicians and officers in District Councils working hard to reflect and support the needs of their communities and places.
It was very good to be asked to edit the collection and fascinating to reflect on the contributions. Many thanks to the following contributors:
Cllr Neil Clarke
Cllr Julian Daly
Cllr Robert Gordon
Cllr Tony Jackson
Thanks also to Simon Parker at NLGN and Emma Tucker at District Council’s Network for their work to make it happen.
