The devolution agenda is a core part of UK political discourse. Since 2014 there has been a marked a shift in service delivery which sees an ever-changing amount of responsibility being passed to local authorities.
With the introduction of regional mayors and, Police and Crime Commissioners, greater powers are being devolved to local areas. Local Authorities have been given the General Power of Competence, which allows them to undertake any actions which they are not specifically restricted from doing. Devolution is expanding with the Government’s Levelling-Up Strategy committing to deals and long-term funding settlements across England by 2030.
