Making sense of the changes

The Local Government Channel talks to John Ransford, Chief Executive of the LG Group about the events of 2010 and how to make sense of the new reality. In a year that witnessed the end of 13 years of Labour rule, a coalition in Westminster, massive 28% cuts in local government funding, decentralisation and Big Society not to mention rows over public sector pensions and executive salaries, he tells Jamie Field about how councils can try to safely navigate the changes and what the LGA’s priorities are for 2011.
