Delivering the New Municipalism: Taking Back Entrepreneurship

APSE Policy Seminar 2019


View the programme here


About the seminar 

As local councils face on-going austerity the concept of ‘New Municipalism’ has been explored by APSE as both a philosophical and practical prism in which to develop responses to support local communities, local people and local economies. Through innovative approaches to service delivery, developing entrepreneurial approaches to managing tight budgets, including developing new sources of income generation and through insourcing services back to local authority control, rebuilding capacity for positive interventions in local areas, New Municipalism is providing a positive framework for change. This seminar will therefore provide a professional learning and networking event to explore:
  • The financial context of New Municipalism
  • The findings of APSE research on New Municipalism with De Montfort University
  • Insourcing: Bringing local services back in-house
  • Commercialisation: Exploring new sources of income
  • Entrepreneurial case study councils: Getting more bang for the local buck
  • Social justice outcomes: Beyond core spend

This seminar will be of great interest to those who are taking a New Municipalist approach to services including:
  • Directors of Environment, Place or Community Service
