Off into London today, to a Conservative Councillors Association event, at which Eric Pickles will be guest speaker. I hope to find out a little more about the CSR and put some meat on the bones of what we already know.
We know it will be a tough few years in Local Government, and I hope that Eric, despite being a damn fine speaker, will be able to cheer me up with a few surprises of good news that I may not have heard about, but I suspect the main thrust will be pointing at councils who are sharing services/management tiers in an effort to save money.
All the more reason why we need to pass the paper on Shared Services with Uttlesford council on the 4th November.
