Another ton of innovations

The conference was a huge success – we were joined by more than 400 councillors, a dozen members of the shadow frontbench including Jeremy Corbyn MP and Tom Watson MP, and we hosted 16 breakout sessions on issues ranging from planning and public health, to austerity and support for the LGBT community. We are proud that once again our plenary speakers were well balanced, with 11 of our 18 speakers being women.

At conference, the LGA Labour Group launched its new publication ‘100 More Innovations by Labour in Power’. It is a testament to the ingenuity and energy of Labour councillors that we are able to launch our second edition of ‘100 Innovations’, proving that, in spite of the crippling cuts to council budgets from this Conservative Government, Labour can still deliver creative solutions that support the most vulnerable in our communities.

You can download a pdf version of the booklet from the LGA Labour Group website, or visit to see the full range of submissions.

Thank you to all those who attended the conference and made it a success. We look forward to seeing you all again at the Labour Local Government Conference 2020, which will be held in Nottingham. Bookings will open in autumn 2019.
