‘Stopping terrorism requires a broad and joined-up approach’: LGA responds to Prevent review

“We have long argued that stopping terrorism requires a broad and joined-up approach.

Final Local Government Finance Settlement 2023/24, House of Commons, 8 February 2023

While the LGA welcomes an overall increase in baseline funding for local authorities, are concerned that a significant proportion of the increase in core spending power for 2023/24 has been achieved through a combination of potentially one-off grants, ring-fenced funding, re-allocation of existing funding, and the assumption that local authorities will implement council tax increases. We continue to make the case for multi-year settlements and for more long-term certainty around funding and budgets.
