We truly dare to be different and when we work together we can be most effective.
This annual report provides updates from our group’s leadership, including board and committee representatives and peers. It shows the work we’ve done and achievements over 2017/18. Getting involved in the activities of the Independent Group enables you to influence the positions and activities of the Local Government Association (LGA), which in turn allows you to achieve more for your residents, leveraging the influence of the LGA to affect government policy.
Despite the changes that result from elections each May, the LGA Independent Group remains the most diverse group of councillors and the most representative of the public within the LGA. It is this diversity, of views, interests, and approaches, alongside our commitment to and connection with our communities, that gives our group strength. When we share a view and take a stand, our voice is powerful. We truly dare to be different and when we work together we can be most effective.
