Hertfordshire Local Update12th November 2012

Claire Kueh

Senior Policy Officer

HCC’s vision for localism vision January 2012:

“To shift power from the state (in the form of the County Council and its local partners) to individuals and families, both personally and also in geographic localities in which they live. It seeks to position councillors as an indispensable resource within active communities. It aims to ensure that residents are suitably informed to allow them to influence and shape local services and take a more active part in helping them help themselves.”
