Vision for Local Regulation

The LGA has launched a ‘Vision for local regulation' which aims to recognise and build on the contribution local trading standards, environmental health and licensing teams can make to economic growth and job creation. In order to deliver the vision, the LGA believes that local regulators must not only be championed for their work tackling rogue businesses and keeping communities safe, but become a trusted and knowledgeable partner with businesses. Every business should feel as comfortable contacting their councils about regulation as our residents do if they want to discuss bin collection, parking or council tax. The LGA recognises that one person's regulation or red tape is another's protection and councils will need to strike a balance. But councils and councillors are best placed to gauge the needs of their area and respond appropriately. There is also hope that the new ‘Vision for local regulation' will help nurture a stronger relationship between councils and business leaders, nationally and locally, from which communities and residents will reap the benefits.
