Continuing budget cuts are 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 at how, through better planning at both national and local level, services can still deliver the quality local environments we all aspire to.
Collecting performance data and using it to manage resources more effectively is becoming increasingly important, with services targeting service delivery rather than relying on historical frequency-based service delivery.
Linked to this is the realisation there is a need to manage increasing demands for service by adopting behavioural change methodologies, such as education, public engagement and ultimately enforcement when necessary.
The seminar will show how local authorities are meeting these challenges by chsnging service delivery in innovative ways - thus allowing more sustainable services to be delivered. As well as managing reduced service budgets more effectively, the seminar will also consider how behavioural change, whether it be education, engagement or enforcement, is being used more effectively.
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.
Experienced speakers will address key issues including:
The seminar is planned to allow considerable time for debate and questions.
