This is the annual report of the Evaluating Local Governance research team for 2004 and the second of a series of five assessing the impact and outcomes of the Local Government Act 2000 part II and III. The Act formed a central plank of the Government’s local government modernisation agenda and sought to improve efficiency, accountability, and trust in the conduct of local authority business through the creations of separate executives, the introduction of overview and scrutiny mechanisms and a new ethical framework to improve standards.
