Times have changed and it is clear the whole of the public sector is under attack and as a region our campaigning is wider than just local government. So we've set up a new blog to cover the work we are dong across the public sector, in health, the police service, transport, energy, HE and FE, as well as local government.
We've imported the posts from the old Local Government Matters blog so there is some continuity. The new blog can be found here.
The "Local Government Matters" blog will now be defunct.
