Deputy Director Adam Hawksbee writes on Birmingham City Council’s s114 notice. He writes:
“Ministers will focus in the coming days and weeks on securing the delivery of core services across the city. The local authority covers the largest population of any municipal government in Europe – delivering social care and keeping the streets clean is a mammoth task. A bold government would use this moment to radically overhaul service delivery – tackling entrenched trade union interest and digitising antiquated processes. During this period attention must not slip from Birmingham’s economy. Investors will pause before purchasing a new site or exploring a new location for their firm. Reassurance must be swift.”
