New TPA column on council finances

October 13, 2008 3:15 PM

Yesterday saw my first contribution to ConservativeHome's Local Government blog - who have kindly invited me to write a weekly column on local government finance. You can read my first article here. Each week we'll be picking up an example of good or bad practice, waste, innovation, inefficiency, mismanagement or sheer lunacy in Town Halls across the land. As ever, if your council has come up with a great way to save taxpayers' money or an awful way to spend it, let us know!
