New info4local launched

info4local is the gateway site for local authorities looking for information about what central government is getting up to and it has just been relaunched with a major new facelift.

The new look and feel gives a much cleaner interface which is easy to navigate and includes new information, for example on UK government consultations, sub-categories for some of the subjects covered by info4local and categorisation by region.

Designed to disseminate information of interest to those working in local authorities, info4local may well be of interest to those researching local government issues and how central government policy filters down to the local level.

The Regional Administration section of the Intute: Government Policy gateway contains many links on the issues of Local Government, Finance and Budgets and Specific Personnel, such as mayors.
