Talk to us

The fast-changing regulatory environment, spending cuts and shifting political landscape pose key challenges for local authorities.

As part of the ‘Build Back Better’ agenda, rapid decisions are needed to approve complex development proposals and complete the transactions as quickly as possible. To do this, local authorities must secure funding and navigate the procurement process — something that many are achieving by striking partnerships with the private sector.

The reduction of budgets and internal resources pose risks to local authorities’ existing assets. Those with large property portfolios must ensure that they are actively and efficiently managed to achieve capital growth and maximise income receipts to avoid assets under-performing or being lost altogether.

Local authorities are increasingly seeking specialist advice to support their own legal teams to resolve challenges and achieve commercial aims.
