APSE National Policy Seminar: Devolution, Transformation and Frontline Services
Friday 10 July Manchester United Football Stadium
This seminar will uniquely explore the emerging policy issues of devolution with the announcement of a Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill. We will explore the implications at a strategic and economic policy level as well as the frontline service issues of housing, health, the local environment, jobs and skills and local economies and the legal framework to enable local government frontline services to be part of the solution on these big strategic issues.
This seminar is an excellent learning and networking opportunity for chief executives, strategic directors, service directors and frontline service and senior management teams, as well as elected members and trade unions looking to develop a collaborative and engaging response to the challenges of devolution.
