Income generation for local authorities

The pressure on local authorities to deliver more with less central government funding continues. 

Following the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement in November 2015, the squeeze on local government has become more pronounced than ever and some of the changes announced could leave some authorities worse off.

In this series of articles, we will be reviewing opportunities for local authorities to address the challenges they face, including:

  • Investment and income generation opportunities arising in the housing sector
  • Developing trading companies and how these could help local authorities
  • Using corporate and contractual joint ventures to deliver on-going value, and
  • The transparency agenda and developments in Data protection law.
