Spending Review 2021: DCN calls for financial certainty and sustainability as the essential foundations for levelling up

Shire districts will deliver the levelling up agenda by driving stronger economies and better lives in every street: close enough to communities to understand them, large enough to effect positive change across 60% of the country. Through this Spending Review, government can back districts, building on the impressive outcomes they have delivered during the pandemic.

Districts are eager to embrace the opportunity to level up, spread opportunity across the country, and confront the environmental challenges we face as a nation. The Spending Review should provide districts with long-term financial certainty and sustainability as the essential foundation for quick progress on these important agendas.
