A network for New Labour supporters in local government is due to be launched at the party conference which begins on 30 September.

The New Local Government Network has been set up to create 'new ideas and a new identity' for councils, according to its five founding members.

Four are council leaders - Len Duvall (Greenwich), Rita Stringfellow (North Tyneside), Rod Hills (York) and Steve Bassam (Brighton and Hove). The fifth member - Professor Gerry Stoker of Strathclyde University - is a keen advocate of elected mayors, one of Tony Blair's pet policies.

Labour local government spokeswoman Hilary Armstrong will give the keynote speech at the network's launch.
