relationships key to devolution success

26 April 2016

Devolution is here to stay, of that there is no doubt, but, with the majority of central government sitting behind the Treasury when it comes to buying into the devolution agenda, what will the long term relationship between central and local government look like? What should it look like?

In Browne Jacobson’s latest thought leadership report 'Our changing state: the realities of austerity and devolution' the issue of the changing relationship between central and local government is considered as key to the success of devolution. Central government departments, some more so than others, will need to change their approach to how they manage and oversee the delivery of public services, due to a combination of less funding available to them directly and more power sitting with local government. Is central government up to the challenge?
