England’s lowest-funded councils ask to level up local finances

A group of the lowest-funded councils across England has called for the government to provide a £300 million funding to level up local finances, the BBC reported.

The F20 group, led by Leicestershire County Council, also includes authorities in York, Bath and Luton.

According to Warrington’s deputy leader Cathy Mitchell, councils had been asked to do more, with less for too long.

The Local Democracy Reporting Service said Labour-controlled Warrington was the latest council to join the cross-party group.
