APSE The New Municipal Entrepreneurs Seminar

APSE The New Municipal Entrepreneurs Seminar

Civic Hall, Calverley St, Leeds
Friday 11 July 2014

View Full Seminar Information

As local authorities, and other public sector bodies, face budget reductions, and in many areas growth in demand at a time when resources are limited, different responses are needed to ensure that services continue. In many APSE member authorities our research studies have shown a growth in municipal entrepreneurialism. Looking at new and innovative ways to deliver services, this seminar will explore opportunities for trading and charging, and the legal powers that local councils can rely upon.

The seminar will also explore the differing relationship between citizens and the state and the role of the public sector in facilitating wide scale change in both service delivery models and regeneration within local economies.
