This week's LGC Policy supplement is an indispensable guide to the wave of change engulfing local government.

The growing trend towards regionalism, the intense debate around Labour's next manifesto, the moves towards lighter touch regulation, and local government minister Nick Raynsford's determination to map out a

10-year vision, have between them created momentum for radical reform unprecedented in the last

20 years.

This supplement examines the complexities of the differing patterns of sub-national government across the country, the impact of regionalism and the challenges facing Mr Raynsford as he tries to deliver the long-term plan he first announced in LGC in January.

This supplement reveals the debates inside the Labour Party on where policy should be heading, and options for the future of regulation.

We dissect some of the more subtle impacts the electronic revolution is having on our organisational hierarchies, and how public sector careers are increasingly breaking out of their old silos of local and central government.

We also look at the limits of tolerance in different authorities to anti-social behaviour, the increasingly important concept of governance and the state of relations between employers and the unions.
