LGN Issue cover:December 2017

The December issue of Local Government News examines why Kensington and Chelsea Council decided to terminate its housing almo in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, and asks if other councils will now review how they manage their housing stock.

This issue also has features on the use of an eco-friendly hot foam weed killer as an alternative to traditional pesticides, and the warning that local authorities could face a significant increase in foster care abuse claims following a recent court ruling.
