Chief Executives’ Network

The Chief Executives Network is made up of district council chief executives from across the country. They work to promote the district council’s role in delivering services to local people, lobby on behalf of all district councils providing a clear and to provide consistent voice about issues that really matter.

The network has identified two key areas to focus its work on over the next year.

Funding – working to ensure that district councils receive a fair allocation of funding and that new services and requirements are adequately funded.

Strategy – ensure that the strategic role played by districts is recognised by government and other agencies.DCEN David Buckle
