Case study

Cotswold District Council, Cheltenham Borough Council, Forest of Dean and West Oxfordshire District Council are all shareholders of Publica, a Local Authority Teckal Company (LATCO) which has been delivering the majority of council services for the past six years. Since Publica was formed, the context for the shareholders has changed because of changes to political control and changes at senior management level, with all four councils having re-instated Chief Executive positions.
