NALC: House of Lords report on the rural economy

The House of Lords Select Committee on the Rural Economy has recently published its final report. Please see attached a briefing highlighting the most relevant points for the local (parish and town) council sector.

One of the key recommendations in the report is that the government develops a rural strategy. NALC is backing the call from the Rural Services Network (RSN) for a rural strategy and is encouraging local councils and county associations to do the same.
