LGA Labour

The LGA Labour Group exists to provide a strong voice for Labour in local government. We represent and support Labour Groups in England and Wales and the Labour councillors within them.


LGA Labour CE

LGA Labour Climate Emergency 
At the Local Government Association annual conference in 2019, the LGA declared a Climate Emergency following a Labour-led motion and amendment to the General Assembly. LGA Labour called on the cross-party LGA to declare a climate emergency, and asked the LGA to commit to supporting councils in their work to tackle climate change by providing a strong unified voice for councils in lobbying for support to address this emergency, and sharing best practice across all councils. Labour in local government continues to champion this important agenda and are taking action up and down the country. The LGA Labour Group has produced a website and a number of resources to support Labour in local government in their work in this area, ensuring that Labour-run councils and Labour Groups have access to case studies, best practice, how-to guides, campaign materials and much more.
