Plans for the establishment of a powerful urban voice within the Local Government Association were given all-party backing at a consultative meeting of over 70 local authorities on Monday in London.

Speaking after the meeting, John Harman, chair of the Urban Commission task group, said:

'The LGA must lead discussions about the future of our urban areas. It needs a strong, representative voice which reflects the diversity of urban authorities in its membership. The Urban Commission will bring these authorities together and provide a coherent urban focus'.

The consultative meeting was held to discuss proposals for the structure, composition and role of the Urban Commission. Written views have also been requested from authorities. Revised proposals will be considered by the LGA's policy and strategy committee on November 5 and by the general assembly on December 17.
