In order to understand how councils made use of these powers and their views as to how such powers might be used in the future, the Local Government Association conducted a ‘temperature check’ of councils in England. The findings of the research were also intended to contribute to an MHCLG call for evidence on the matter.
The Local Government Association (LGA) measures resident satisfaction with councils every three to four months. This report presents the results of the twenty-eighth round of polling conducted in February 2021.
To help councils with their thinking and to shape a narrative that will resonate locally, we commissioned BritainThinks to research how the pandemic has changed public opinion and behaviour, and what matters most for them.
