Call-in guidance: discussion paper

Posted on 23/09/2022 by Ed Hammond.

In autumn 2022 CfGS plans the publication of new guidance on the operation of call-in for English local authorities. To inform this process we are issuing some introductory information setting out likely areas that the guidance will consider, and the likely overall tone and structure of the document, to elicit feedback. 

If you have thoughts on call-in and would like to discuss them please contact Ed Hammond at 

CfGS is holding several webinars in September and October 2022 to support the drafting process. Please contact Ed for more information. 


This work is being carried out in partnership with ADSO (the Association of Democratic Services Officers) and LLG (Lawyers in Local Government), and with the financial support of the LGA and HM Government.
