Local councils can now apply for a free portrait of His Majesty The King

NALC and the Cabinet Office can confirm that local (parish and town) councils can now apply for a free portrait of His Majesty The King.

The accession of His Majesty The King marked a new chapter in the national story. A new Reign means new national symbols, such as the face on stamps, coins, and banknotes, gradually changing from Queen Elizabeth II to King Charles III. 

Portraits of past Monarchs also hang in public buildings across the United Kingdom, from local council offices and town halls to 10 Downing Street. They are a visible reminder of the institutions that unite our United Kingdom.

To celebrate the new reign of His Majesty The King, the Cabinet Office announced a government-funded voluntary scheme throughout the United Kingdom to allow public authorities to apply for a free, framed portrait.

The scheme was launched on 14 November 2023 and is now open for applications from parish, town, and community councils.

If your council falls within the scope of this voluntary scheme, you can view the image and apply for one free framed portrait per council:

Once your registration has been accepted, you can place an order and provide delivery details. The closing date for applications is 28 March 2024. 

Please refer to the FAQs for specific questions about the portrait and the scheme:

Proposed changes to national planning rules for brownfield sites

The government has announced proposed changes to national planning rules for brownfield sites and has opened a consultation for views.

The changes include proposals that will “make clear that when considering planning applications, local planning authorities should give significant weight to the benefits of delivering as many homes as possible, especially where this involves land which is previously developed”.

This consultation will begin on 13 February 2024 and close at 11.45pm on 26 March 2024.

Consultation on changes to various permitted development rights

The government has announced a consultation on changes to Permitted Development Rights, which, amongst other things, would allow for the alteration, extension and, to a lesser extent, the construction of certain buildings without requiring planning permission as well as relax restrictions on the siting and size of electric vehicle charging points and air source heat pumps.

This consultation will last for 8 weeks from 13 February 2024 to 9 April 2024.

Biodiversity Net Gain requirements

In England, the new Biodiversity Net Gain requirements in the planning process came into effect this week.

Biodiversity net gain is a way of creating and improving biodiversity by requiring development to have a positive impact (‘net gain’) on biodiversity.

In England, biodiversity net gain is required under a statutory framework introduced by Schedule 7A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (inserted by the Environment Act 2021). This statutory framework is referred to as ‘biodiversity net gain’ in Planning Practice Guidance to distinguish it from other or more general biodiversity gains.

£3 billion affordable housing boost to deliver 20,000 new homes

The government has announced further financial support for the provision of affordable homes.

20,000 new affordable homes will be built across the country due to a £3 billion increase in a government-backed loan fund which opened 12 February 2024.

The Affordable Homes Guarantee Scheme 2020 provides low-cost, flexible and long-term loans to help fund investment in new and existing affordable homes across England, including those for social rent, affordable rent and shared ownership.

As part of the scheme, providers will be able to apply for loans to help make homes fit for the future. These energy upgrades, such as solar panels, could potentially save tenants hundreds of pounds on their energy.

Local government finance settlement 2024-2025

The final local government finance settlement 2024 to 2025 was approved by the House of Commons following a debate in Parliament on 5 February 2024. The settlement confirms the exclusion of local councils from referendum principles for another year. In the NALC response to the consultation on the provisional settlement last month, we had advocated for either a permanent exemption for local councils from referendum principles or exemption as part of a three-year deal. This request for a multiyear deal was echoed during the debate by shadow local government minister Jim McMahon MP, who called out the government for not putting forward a sustained multi-year finance settlement. Also, during the debate, the MP for Loughborough, Jane Hunt MP, thanked councils including local councils in her constituency for all the work they are doing. 

The full collection of documents relating to the finance settlement can be found here:

NALC publishes a briefing on council email addresses and password security

The briefing is designed to help local (parish and town) councils better understand how to protect emails, password security and the benefits of having a domain name.

NALC recommends that councils adopt a domain name to improve professionalism within the sector and better manage information within the council. The briefing highlights the main advantages of this approach for councillors, clerks, and the public.

The briefing has been published as a response to requests for more information on how best to manage domain names. It comes at a time when many organisations, whether small or large, are more at risk of security breaches, which this briefing helps to address.

NALC is working closely with the government's Parish Council Domains Helper Service to promote the benefits of domain names and to understand better how adopting domain names can be made more straightforward.

The briefing also includes good practices in managing passwords and email security, which will help stop potential data breaches and ensure that emails are kept confidential and only accessed by the appropriate person.

Upcoming NALC event: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of social media in the local council sector

28 February 2024 — 12.00 – 13.15

Social media can be a powerful tool for local (parish and town) councils to engage with their communities, but it can also be a source of conflict and negativity. This event will explore the benefits and drawbacks of social media use in the sector and provide guidance on how to use it effectively and responsibly.

Join us for a candid discussion on the dos and don’ts of social media in the local council sector. We'll explore case studies and best practices and provide actionable advice on creating a social media policy that promotes civility and respect. Whether you're a seasoned social media user or just getting started, this event is a must-attend for anyone who wants to use social media to build stronger communities.

Speakers: Louise Bareham (Faversham Town Council), Nicky Old (Local Government Association) and Daniel Purchese (Breakthrough Communications).

The campaign for this year’s The Big Lunch (1-2 June) has begun! 

The Big Lunch – which many local councils have been supporting for several years – helps create safer neighbourhoods and addresses social isolation. By bringing people together over shared meals, this initiative plays a crucial role in strengthening social bonds, promoting a sense of belonging, and enhancing civic pride within local communities. 1 in 5 of the UK population took part last year and local councils are once encouraged to get involved. 

The Eden Project will be hosting a free webinar on 26 February 2023 at 1 pm, offering guidance on how councils can support the Big Lunch campaign and their communities. More information on the webinar and how to register can be found here:

Parish UK website

LALC would like to reiterate previous advice given last year to treat this website with caution. This is not a initiative, as it seems to purport to be. We strongly advise that all parishes should steer well clear of this website and organisation. 

Parish.UK was covered in a BBC Radio 4 program in May 2023 which raised a number of significant concerns about the website so the advice to all is to ignore it.

Martyn's Law Steering Group  

The NALC/SLCC Martyn’s Law Steering Group held its latest online meeting on 9 February 2024 to progress sector activity regarding the Draft Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill, otherwise known as Martyn’s Law. 

Some highlights include: 

  • The Steering Group reviewed the interim feedback from the rapid response sector survey, noting that there were still relatively low awareness levels of Martyn’s Law, that respondents so far had highlighted cost concerns and thought there should be a standard terrorism evaluation template form for local councils to complete.  

  • As the survey aims to inform NALC and SLCC’s responses to the Martyn’s Law standard tier consultation, the Steering Group agreed to extend the deadline to 23:45 on 29 February – please complete this short survey which should only take 5 minutes here:

  • It was agreed to meet again before the final Home Office standard tier consultation ( submission deadline for responses of 18 March 2024.

Funding to help VCSE organisations improve energy efficiency

On 7 December 2023, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport launched a £25.5 million funding package to help voluntary, community, and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations in England improve their energy efficiency. Eligible organisations are encouraged to apply for an independent energy assessment and capital grants to install energy efficiency measures. The scheme is open to frontline community organisations across England. Groundwork UK, which is delivering the scheme, is particularly keen to hear from small and medium organisations with significant concerns around energy which are directly supporting individuals and communities with critical needs, especially those related to the rising cost of living. 

Examples include: 

  • services that address poverty, including providing food, warmth, emergency supplies or personal grants. 

  • shelter, accommodation and housing for those most in need. 

  • advice for people experiencing financial, housing or legal challenges. 

  • services that address specific physical and mental health issues. 

  • education, training and employment services that improve employability. 

  • community hubs or centres, out of which a number of these services operate. 

Councils are encouraged to share this scheme with VCSE organisations in their area and organisations are encouraged to apply as soon as possible!
