Who are local government’s most influential figures? Nominate now

  • Comment

We need your input to create the ultimate local government power list: the LGC100, supported by Sky Ad Smart.

The list will name the people who our panel of judges believe will exert the greatest influence in determining and delivering local government services during 2018. Anyone in or around local government, with the exception of the prime minister, chancellor and leader of the Opposition, is eligible for inclusion.

The LGC100, to be unveiled at a launch event at the BT Tower in January, will highlight the people who dominate the sector nationally, including officers, members, national politicians, civil servants and thinkers.

Who will carry the most weight when it comes to determining councils’ financial health? Which people will be at the forefront of the devolution agenda? Who is a driving force in transformation, integrating with health or partnership working? Which people are leading the way in developing new delivery models for local authorities? Who do you think is changing the way local authorities manage their finances or encourage economic development?

How to nominate

Nominating candidates couldn’t be easier, and you may nominate as many as you like.

Simply send an email to, with ‘LGC100 Nomination’ in the subject line. In your email, please include:

  • The name, job title, and organisation of the person you wish to nominate
  • A statement (50 words maximum) explaining why and how they are influential

Alternatively, you can tweet your nomination using the hashtag #LGC100.

Eligibility extends to anyone working in or with English councils to shape the future of local government, including officers, politicians, civil servants and consultants.

Our expert panel of judges will draw from the nominations to form the final list of 100.
