Local Government Association (LGA)


The LGA is the national voice for local government. We work with and for councils to achieve the best possible outcomes for its communities at all levels of government and beyond.

The LGA is a voluntary membership body and our 422 member authorities cover every part of England and Wales. They include county councils, metropolitan district councils, English unitary authorities, London boroughs and shire district councils, along with fire authorities, police authorities, national park authorities and passenger transport authorities. The 22 Welsh unitary authorities are in corporate membership through the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) which retains full autonomy in dealing with Welsh affairs.
