Reforming Local Government

The White Paper ‘Reforming Local Government’  is the Welsh Government’s statement of intent about the future of Local Government.  It invites your suggestions and other responses by 1 October.  The paper is the Government’s response to the Williams Commission and it invites wide engagement with the reality of the need to reform structures and services, and our expectations of them, in the face of funding pressures.  Topics such as community engagement, transparency, scrutiny, community councils and neighbourhood management, collaboration and funding feature as much as the well-publicised merger proposals.
