RE: CLG Draft Structural Reform Plan
Yes, I found it peculiar that the "Home on the Farm" thing was highlighted and am intrigued!
As for LAAs - there will still be (there will have to be) agreements between the council and its partners about work being undertaken locally. However, I suspect that in future this will be carried out on a more pragmatic (and, arguably, meaningful) basis as part of place-based budgeting arrangements. LAAs in their current form may go because they embody the kind of top-down prescription that the current Government especially dislikes.
Quite apart from anything else, with the regional Government Offices being abolished, who would be in a position to approve the LAAs anyway? And with CAA and the NIS gone too, the reason for Government approval of LAAs and direction as to their contents melts away.
This is all, of course, supposition at this stage (isn't everything?)
