Local & Regional Government 

Local government is currently in a period of major challenge and change, and will be for the foreseeable future.


A complex mix of issues are driving change, ranging from severe financial pressures to the demographic shifts that are placing huge pressure on key services, right through to the critical need to improve the economic competitiveness of local areas.

KPMG is at the heart of this change agenda.  We are major suppliers of advisory, tax and assurance services to local authorities and Whitehall departments that fund local services.


KPMG supports local authority clients around the UK to tackle these pressures including tailored advice in four areas: economic growth; balance sheet; improved productivity; and managing future demand.



Cities are like magnets. Just as magnets can either attract or repel, so can cities.

Read the full report on our nine Magnet Cities and discover what successfully flipped their magnetic orientation.
