Chancellor Philip Hammond has pledged a ‘full three-year spending review’ for local government before the summer recess.
In today’s Spring Statement, Mr Hammond said the review - which will only happen as long as a Brexit deal is agreed - would set departmental budgets beyond the NHS.
Localis chief executive, Jonathan Werran, said: 'The statement was a useful exercise in setting out what unprotected areas of public spending might expect from the next three-year Spending Review before the summer recess - once the £34bn NHS funding boost has been priced in.
'The straightforward issue is what a deal dividend or even a no-deal punishment beating will mean to improving public services and economic support in our localities. What benefit might people and places experience in their daily lives from a 2.1% uptick on day-to-day spending on public services after a decade of austerity?'
Mr Hammond also announced a new £3bn Affordable Homes Guarantee scheme to help deliver up to 30,000 affordable homes.
The Government will also launch a global review of the link between biodiversity and economic growth. This follows confirmation that the Government will mandate biodiversity net gain for development in England.
Alongside the Spending Review, he also confirmed the Government would publish an updated National Infrastructure Strategy.
Other announcements today included funding for the provision of free sanitary products in secondary schools and colleges and £100m for police forces in England to tackle knife crime.
