New freedoms for councils under consultation launched today (6 May)


Councils could have more freedom in financial decisions to spend or trade, and to coordinate local issues such as local transport their way, in a new consultation launched today.

In a move set to devolve even more power to local authorities and cut down on bureaucracy, the public will be invited to have their say on whether or not their council should have more financial and statutory freedom to deliver the most pressing needs of their community.

The consultation closes on 28 July and can be found at www.communities.gov.uk/corporate/publications/consultations
