A summary

‘The LGA believes the Spending Review should:

Enable wider integration of social care and health services to deliver savings and improve outcomes 

Promote growth and productivity by accepting the case for further devolution of powers and funding.

Help councils adequately resource and deliver high quality public services by transforming the business rate mechanism and providing a four year local government finance settlement.’
