Local Area Agreements

Local Area Agreements (LAAs) are agreements between central and local government. They aim to improve how Government works with local authorities and partners to improve public services.

Local Area Agreements (LAAs) are a new way of striking a deal between central Government, local authorities and major local delivery partners in an area. More information on the national picture

The LAAs key objectives are to:

  • improve central/local relations
  • improve service delivery
  • improve efficiency
  • improve partnership working
  • enable Local Authorities to provide better leadership.

We have the leading role in negotiating all the East Midlands LAAs, providing the link between local authorities (LAs) and central government. This involves us working with LAs and their partners, to negotiate clear targets and outcomes leading up to the agreements going live.
