LGComms unveils speaker line-up

Local government minister Phil Woolas will lead the speaker line-up at this year's LGComms conference.

The event, held in Birm­ingham in May and spanning three days, will focus on the local government theme of ‘People and Places'.

Richmond Council head of comms and LGComms executive member Cormac Smith said: ‘People and Places looks to encourage local councils to get into the boroughs that they are supposed to be governing.'

He added: ‘We are aiming to make sure that councils are providing more community support.'

For the first time at the annual conference, an award will be given to a council in recognition of national press coverage that has raised the profile, and improved the reputation, of local government.
