One of my main priorities when I became the LGA Conservative Group Leader was to work with the Government and colleagues to address the funding pressures that we all face.
“The housing borrowing cap has hampered councils’ ability to play a leading role in tackling the housing shortage”
“Councils have lost 60p out of every £1 since 2010”
“We are listening to you, speaking for councils nationally, and getting more good people to stand”
We’ve had the speech from the Prime Minister – now let’s see the borrowing cap gone for good.
“People want the best possible council performance for their residents”
“Many councils are being forced to cut early intervention work, which helps children avoid reaching crisis point”
“Conservative councils consistently deliver excellent services in challenging financial circumstances”
“Councils are struggling to meet the increased demand that children’s social care now faces”
