People and Places Board Terms of Reference


Local Government Association (LGA) Boards engage with and develop a thorough understanding of councils' priorities in relation to their particular programme area. They also help shape our business plan and, through extensive engagement with councils, oversee programmes of work that deliver the strategic priorities set by the Executive Advisory Board.


The People and Places Board seeks to develops greater clarity on the role of nonmetropolitan authorities in enabling economic growth for the long-term benefit of residents, and on how transformation in public services can enable that.


For information on the latest activities of the Board, you can view the Chair’s regular reports to Councillors' Forum.
