Localism in local government


"One Tier or Two? - A debate about the right scale for local government" (PDF)

Authors: Tom Shakespeare (Editor), Matthew Groves, Kevin Lavery and Roger Gough

Publication date: 22 October 2009

The authors advocate a localist agenda for local government which allows councils to be free from central government intereference, regulation and funding. The paper supports devolving many functions of central government down to councils and increasingly the accountability of local government.
