What is the LGA?
We are a politically-led, cross-party organisation that works on behalf of councils to ensure
local government has a strong, credible voice with national government. We aim
to influence and set the political agenda on the issues that matter to councils
so they are able to deliver local solutions to national problems.
Who are our members?
We are a membership organisation.
All English councils are members of the LGA* (414 authorities in total). These
members include 350 English councils, the 22 Welsh councils via the Welsh LGA,
31 fire authorities, 10 national parks and one town council. *With the
exception of London Borough of Bromley, Sheffield City Council and London
Borough of Wandsworth.
