Local government News is the leading magazine for officers in every department of local government. Providing an unrivalled circulation, it showcases the latest information on what is happening within the sector, helping our readers deal with the changing face of local government.

With its independent and exclusive editorial policy, Local Government News covers examples of best practice, information of new Government policy, and analysis of the latest sector developments.

It covers the six core areas of most interest to local government: the built environment, public realm, procurement and efficiency, IT and technology, finance, and health and social care. Each issue also features a special focus such as HR, the environment or regeneration.

The magazine is informed by the most popular news from LocalGov, developing the stories that the sector are really interesting in.
