This practitioner-focused guide to local government reorganisation in England seeks to bring clarity to this complex issue and provide insight into what reorganisation might mean for individual local authorities and the communities they serve. Broken down into topic specific chapters, each one begins with an overview of the key themes addressed within it and includes a series of questions to promote deeper consideration and discussion within your organisation.

It is aimed at local government practitioners, senior managers and elected members who are considering local government reorganisation for their own authority or who would like to simply find out more. It will also be of interest to individuals and organisations that may seek to support local authorities through the reorganisation process.

This guide does not seek to set out a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to reorganisation. Rather, it brings together the experiences of those who have been down this road before – as well as the views of academics, practitioners and technical specialists – to provide ideas, insight and inspiration that will help readers to form their own views on reorganisation and how it might best be brought about.
