Abstract

Local government is one of the largest service employers in Great Britain, employing 2.9 million full and part-time staff in over 500 separate local authorities. The present structure of local government was established by a series of legislative changes in the mid-1970s which reorganized 1400 separate local authorities into the current 500 or so. The nature of each authority varies considerably in terms of geographical area, size of population and the physical environment.
