Publica. Transformation through innovation
Publica Group is one of the case studies in a new national ‘Transformation in Localities Toolkit’ launched at the District Councils’ Network Spring Assembly.
It’s only six months since four local authorities launched Publica Group Ltd, a ground-breaking partnership which promises to deliver better local services for residents.
Since then, things have moved at a rapid pace and over the last few weeks the four partner councils - Cheltenham Borough Council, Cotswold, Forest of Dean and West Oxfordshire District Councils - have approved an exciting new Publica business plan, charting the way ahead in 2018/19.
In November, Cotswold, Forest of Dean and West Oxfordshire District Councils are launching a ground-breaking partnership which promises to deliver better local services for residents.
Four independent Non-Executive Directors have been appointed to sit on the boards of Publica Group – three new local authority owned companies providing services for district councils in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire.
