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.
