Item 7 - London Councils Challenge - utilising the contributions of London local government more broadly

Summary    

Following on from the London Councils Challenge report and discussions involving Leaders and chief executives – both separately and collectively – this report sets out a basis for strengthening the way in which the collective political leadership of London local government, via London Councils, can be best supported by contributions from the sector in London, in particular by borough chief executives.

Recommendations
    
Leaders’ Committee is asked to:
(i)    endorse the proposed process for strengthening the means by which the contribution of London local government more broadly to its collective political leadership via London Councils can best be harnessed;
(ii)    agree that a detailed Memorandum of Understanding be developed to support this approach and establish the principles  which should underpin the operation of commissioned support to London Councils by chief executives and other senior staff.
