Announcement on 2014 Awards

It is with regret that we announce the Street Design Awards will not be taking place this year.

Many councils have told us that in light of staffing and budget cuts, they simply do not have the time or resources to enter this year’s awards. We understand the current pressures being placed on local government and the work involved in entering an awards competition, so have made the decision to cancel this year's event.

We will survey our readers towards the end of the year and will keep you updated about the 2015 awards when we have more information.

In the latest issue of Local Government News we explore how councils are promoting themselves to film and television studios to find creative ways of driving inward investment, why a new report is calling for the end of standardised public services, and ask what impact 'no-win no-fee' court cases have had on local government.

This issue also contains features on how changes to postal voting may leave the electoral system open to fraud, what impact government measures have had on school design, what the Digital by Default agenda means for local authorities and a report on how councils are using social media
