Leading the Localities : Executive Mayors in English Local Governance, Paperback / softback Book

Leading the Localities : Executive Mayors in English Local Governance Paperback / softback


This book, now available in paperback, is the result of national research conducted amongst England's directly elected mayors and the councillors that serve alongside them.

It is the first such major publication to assess the impact on local politics of this new office and fills a gap in our understanding of how the Local Government Act 2000 has influenced local governance.

The book also draws from a range of research that has focused on elected mayors - in England and overseas - to set out how the powers, roles and responsibilities of mayors and mayoral councils would need to change if English local politics is to fundamentally reconnect with citizens.

It not only explores how English elected mayors are currently operating, but how the office could develop and, as such, is a major contribution to the debate about the governance of the English localities. -- .
