COVENTRY AND WIGAN AHEAD IN RACE FOR PILOT STATUS

Coventry City Council and Wigan MBC are expected to be among the 13 local public service agreement pilots named in September.

LGC exclusively revealed last week that the two were among 17 in the running to pilot the agreements, which could bring extra money, freedom and flexibility in return for setting challenging service improvement targets.

Local Government Association head of local government finance Neil Kinghan said he would be very surprised if Coventry was not a pilot, and Wigan is confident of winning a place. The four that do not become pilots are likely to drop out voluntarily, said Mr Kinghan: 'I'm not expecting all will come forward with detailed proposals.'
