Welcome to the latest issue of Geldards’ local government newsletter

In this issue, we consider some recent cases which have made some important points on the subject of public procurement and on the subject of the relevance of a family’s right to rent on the assessment of a child’s needs. We also report on consultations on ethical standards in local government and on revision of the National Planning Policy Framework for England and reform of the system of developer contributions to affordable housing.
