Local authority infrastructure financing

A complex system of local government has developed across the UK as a result of reorganisations and changes to funding regimes.

This section explores the various ways local authorities finance infrastructure projects, detailing the sources of funding available, as well as the difficulties and potential pitfalls of the system.

It begins with an overview of local government and infrastructure, before moving on to explore the different funding options available to local authorities. It then turns to the subject of credit risk and debt, before concluding with issues of localisation and devolution, and pension funds.
