Access to capital for local services

Richard Stanton

A project by Richard Stanton at the London Research Centre explores ways in which capital can be secured for investment in local public services in England.

It looks at them comprehensively, as a system embracing Housing Corporation finance and private investment as well as capital allocations to local authorities, and draws comparisons with France and Denmark. The researchers concludes that there is extensive central government control not just over the total amount of resources for local public investment but also over the way these funds are finally applied.
