Local Government Association

We are a political organisation because it is our elected representatives from all different political parties that direct the organisation through our boards and panels. However, we always strive to agree a common cross-party position on issues and to speak with one voice on behalf of local government. 

We aim to set the political agenda and speak in the national media on the issues that matter to council members. The LG Group covers every part of England and Wales and includes county and district councils, metropolitan and unitary councils, London boroughs, Welsh unitary councils, fire, police, national park and passenger transport authorities.

We also work with the individual political parties through the political group offices.

The Purchaser is commissioning a Provider to develop a report highlighting the social and economic opportunities and benefits of repurposing shopping centres to reflect the needs of the town centre, the community, the local authority, and the businesses located within their area. The report will be evidence based with case studies and the provider will suggest measures and approaches councils can take to repurpose shopping centres or support the repurpose of shopping centres where their ownership lies solely in the private sector.

To design and deliver an offer that resonates with local authorities, the preferred supplier will draw on their knowledge, connections and ideas and work closely with a small working group of officers drawn from the LGA, CEDOS and other local government bodies (which we will secure) to define the focus and content of the support offer and meet two further times throughout the project until its conclusion. It will be a sounding board for the supplier.
