It also highlights the potential and actual benefits gained by those local authorities and LSPs which are already adopting a sustainable development approach, including money savings, improved local economies, more effective partnership working, and more joined-up service delivery.
The report is the result of a year-long project involving a range of national, regional and local bodies looking at the steps needed for sustainable development to be embedded in local decision- making, focusing in particular on LSPs, Sustainable Community Strategies and LAAs. It sits alongside a collection of 11 good practice case studies to provide a practical resource for local authorities looking to make decisions which will benefit their communities in the long term.
