I agree, but there is a limit to what you can explain in three short and light-hearted pieces. I can assure both of them the forthcoming New Local Government Network report The West Sussex, Wakefield and Birmingham Localism Project is extremely detailed concerning the different models each council is developing.
It is also detailed about the current contextual drivers towards local government decentralisation and what different models might aim to achieve. The report will not suggest these are the only councils making a reality of new ways of working, but will simply offer insights into three different approaches.
