East of England Annual Finance Summit

7th June 2017

The East of England Annual Finance Summit will take place at 10:00 – 15:15 on 15 June 2017 at Girton College, Cambridge.

Issues such as the impact of emerging devolution deals, a new system for Business Rates Retention, and the proposals contained within the Housing White Paper, as well as the increasing fears around the future affordability of social care are just the tip of the iceberg for councils that are already struggling to make ends meet. In the face of these challenges, alongside the outcome of the general election, both officers and elected members across the East of England are increasingly innovative and creative in their approaches. For example, managing demand, creating opportunities for income generation and digital solutions provide significant opportunities for councils to maximise their efficiency and improve services for local residents. 
  
At this summit we will explore how councils have so-far faced the challenge of reduced funds and will hear from specialists on good practice examples, as well as what more councils can do to become pioneers in an ever changing world.
