Public Sector Voices: EP.40 'Under Pressure'

In the 40th episode of the Public Sector Executive Podcast, host Dan Benn spoke to Cllr James Jamieson about all things local government.

As chairman of the Local Government Association and Leader of Central Bedfordshire Council, James took us through some of the most pressing issues being faced by local government at the moment, including the housing crisis, meeting housing targets, achieving net zero carbon emissions, and issues with a lack of funding impacting the services that councils provide. Speaking about the effort councils are making to continue providing for their communities despite dwindling funding, James said:

"Every council is doing its damnedest to support its residents. No two places are alike and that means that the pressures that different places face are different."

To hear James' expert insight into the struggles being faced by local councils in 2023, as well as other insightful guests, make sure you tune into the Public Sector Executive Podcast
