Local Government Finance: Making Tough Choices
June 23, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Scotland’s councils are facing enormous pressures and uncertainty. Recently applauded by the Accounts Commission for coping well with funding cuts, this plaudit came alongside a salutary warning that financial pressures will be on ‘a scale not previously experienced’. It also came with a warning that scheduled debt repayment would coincide with an unprecedented peak in service demand.
At Holyrood’s Local Government Finance policy event delegates will also discuss the paradox that councils most in need of money to deliver services are invariably those least well-placed to raise money locally.
