Leicestershire's Future

Leicestershire's Future

IMPORTANT "Leicestershire's Future" - Big Discussions about Great Communities

Leicestershire and Rutland Association of Local Councils in partnership with Leicestershire County Council is running three events this Autumn aimed at ALL Parish and Town Councils in Leicestershire regardless of size. We would encourage all councils to send at least one delegate (but preferably more) to one of these events as the content and discussion will be relevant to every council, from the smallest Parish to the largest Town.

The discussion events are continuing the conversation on developing and building responsive and resilient communities, with Parish and Town Councils taking a lead in local service delivery and considering local needs and aspirations. Communities are often best placed to understand their own needs and to develop their own solutions. The discussion events aim to explore how Parish & Town Council can best be supported to identify needs and aspirations and deliver local solutions.

Austerity has changed the landscape for the delivery of community services. Whereas most public services have seen budget reductions and saving requirements, Parish Councils have not had such financial pressures.

In Leicestershire, the County Council has had to make significant savings over the last few years as part of the Government's drive to reduce public spending. Already, it has saved £166m since 2010 and will be required to make a further £66m of savings by 2020. Luckily local (parish and town) councils have not had top down reductions in funding applied to them as:

  1. They do not and have never received core funding from Government (so it can't be reduced!).
  2. They remain "uncapped" and able to precept according to need.

We know that many parish and town councils have strong views on the reductions in community services in their areas, but the harsh reality is that these are as a result of savings being imposed by Government and are already happening. The public service landscape will continue to change over the coming years, and many parish and town councils will want to consider what role they can play in ensuring that certain services that people want are delivered in some form at a local level. Many Parish & Town Councils have responded to the challenges and are now supporting or delivering community services in their local community.

Whilst LRALC recognises that local councils are autonomous bodies who set their own priorities, make their own decisions, and agree their own precepts, we are keen to increase their confidence and ambition to make use of the powers and possibilities open to them to provide new, expanded, and/or devolved services to their parishioners, if they wish to. Leicestershire County Council is keen to understand how it can best support and enable Parish & Town Councils to enhance local community services, based on local priorities and will.

These 3 events will be run jointly by LRALC and LCC and will provide attendees with:

  • An overview of the current national picture in terms of local councils working together to deliver local services, and the existing and new powers they have to do this.
  • A facilitated discussion with attendees around the role that local councils may wish to play in delivering new, expanded, and/or devolved services to their parishioners.
  • An opportunity to contribute to the County Council's Communities Strategy as a framework for delivery.

The events are scheduled for:

  • Thursday 28th September – Broughton Astley Village Hall – 6-9pm
  • Monday 2nd October – Asfordby Village Hall – 6-9pm
  • Thursday 5th October – County Hall, Glenfield – 6-9pm

You can book on the events online here: http://www.leicestershireandrutlandalc.gov.uk/leicestershies-future---big-disc.html

The events are not part of any consultation on how the County Council should achieve savings. Rather they are aimed at facilitating a discussion on the current changes and their implications, and providing Parish and Town Councils with the information they need to take an informed decision on the role they wish to play in future community service delivery.

LRALC is seeking to put specific support in place in conjunction with the County Council to assist local councils who wish to do this but who currently lack the capacity, knowledge, or skills to do so if the appetite to further the devolution agenda exists.

The events provide a good opportunity to share your opinions, thoughts and suggestions on how the LRALC and Leicestershire County Council can best support parish and town councils and local communities to achieve the best possible outcomes for everyone.
