Revitalising local government

Whitehouse Consultancy Chair, Chris Whitehouse, has called for local government to be “set free to reinvent itself” in response to its leading role during the covid pandemic.

Writing on the influential political website, Conservative Home, Chris says:

“Local Government Secretary, Robert Jenrick, needs to set local government free to reinvent itself for its local communities after the pandemic, and encourage them to make their own decisions, for which they are accountable to their local electorate, about how best to recruit, retain, and motivate candidates of the highest possible calibre.”
