With Paul Scully MP, I completed a major study, funded by the Leadership Centre for Local Government, which investigated how central government demands were impacting on the role and behaviours of Conservative councillors. The report concluded that the role of councillor was changing with a greater emphasis on citizen enablement and there was a need for greater recognition from Westminster of the role of councillors.
