Seminar Objectives

Continuing budget cuts are now beginning to take their toll with public satisfaction levels falling as local authorities try to cope with less resources. With this in mind the seminar looks how through better planning at both national and local level, services can still deliver the quality local environments we all aspire to.

The seminar will show how national government and local authorities are meeting these challenges and changing service delivery in innovative ways which allow more sustainable services to be delivered.

The aim of the seminar is therefore to provide delegates with the latest information, examples of innovation and real-life case studies which together will equip local authorities for the forthcoming challenges facing their services.

APSE has brought together a wide variety of speakers who will explain to delegates how they have transformed policy into practice to achieve these changes.

The seminar is planned to allow considerable time for debate and questions.
