District councils have been urged to submit evidence to an inquiry into the opportunities presented by devolution.
The inquiry - launched by the APPG for District Councils - will also examine how innovative approaches to collaboration can improve outcomes for local communities.
Chair of the Group, Mark Pawsey, said: ‘This inquiry by the APPG for District Councils is about identifying the best examples of this collaboration and establishing why they are succeeding and what lessons other districts can learn from them.
‘We will also seek to identify what opportunities this collaboration provides for districts to access further powers, responsibilities and incomes and work closely with their communities to achieve further devolution.’
The inquiry has been welcomed by chairman of the District Councils’ Network, Cllr Neil Clarke, who said they want to see a greater focus on placed based public service reform.
