Local Government

The Coalition Government aspires to a fundamental shift of power from Westminster to the people through promoting decentralisation and democratic engagement.  The Government proposes to end the era of top-down government by giving new powers to councils, communities, neighbourhoods and individuals. Therefore, new legislation is being introduced, such as the Localism and Decentralisation Bill which includes a General Power of Competence for councils, as well as an upheaval for governance of local authorities, such as standards and pay accountability changes and having directly elected mayors.
