Devolution & Decentralisation

This year the bumper crop of May local government elections – including the strategic mayoral elections held over from last year – and the anticipated publication of the delayed Recovery and Devolution White Paper will focus attention on the transfer of powers, finance and funding from Whitehall.

In the first full year after the UK’s departure from the European Union, Localis’s devolution and decentralisation workstream intends to explore:

  • The path of decentralisation to support social resilience and recovery efforts;
  • Opportunities for fiscal devolution and decentralisation either side of the Spending Review – is this a final chance to resource the local state?
  • How we support strong leadership and encourage place leaders to improve governance, risk and resilience.
  • Digital decentralisation and realisation of a ‘connected society’ vision of local public service reform that leaves nobody behind.
