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.
