2020 Draft Programme

With his overwhelming Commons majority bolstered by former Labour heartland areas in the Midlands and the North Prime Minister Boris Johnson is now in a position to mould his new administration in his own light. Will there be a return to a more one-nation Conservatism? More devolution is expected to be high on the agenda as is housing, education, infrastructure investment and social care reform while a Budget is planned for March 11. In our popular invite-only 24-hour annual event for local authority chief executives top speakers will give their views on the direction of travel for the new administration and its implications for local government.
