Local government funding: What could a more streamlined system look like?

The current grants system is holding local government back - join Centre for Cities and Clive Betts MP to discuss what a more streamlined system could look like.

Event starts at 12:30 - 13:30 on 11 July 2023 at Online, via Zoom

Following the recent publication of the Levelling Up, Housing and Communities Select Committee’s Report into Funding for Levelling Up, and the release of Centre for Cities’ new briefing ‘Pot luck: What government needs to do to streamline local government funding’, join us for this online event discussing the failures of the current funding systems and subsequent recommendations for Government.

Discussion will focus on the problems with current funding mechanisms, the need to consolidate funding and set longer-term timescales, and how this will help deliver ‘levelling up’.

This event will include a presentation from Centre for Cities and there will also be an opportunity for Q&A.

Clive Betts MP, Chair, Levelling Up, Housing and Communities Committee
