About this event

Gradually, the Government is starting to reveal how the new system will work, and how it will affect local authorities. This event will explore in-depth the proposals and use our CIPFA/Pixel in-house funding models to practitioners a genuine insight into their implications. The event will give extra context to the broader localism agenda and plans to make authorities more self-sustaining in terms of funding arrangements, once the current RSG arrangements cease in 2020.

  • chief technical officers
  • financial planning advisory/technical officers

He has been involved in grant settlements both as a practitioner within local authorities, and as an external advisor. He has also advised numerous representative groups (LGA, Sparse, Central London Boroughs, HEA SIG) and lobbying campaigns.

He understands the pressures local authorities are under in the run-up to budget setting, and the information and analysis they need.
