• Navigating public law requirements when making changes to services is complex and easy to get wrong, leaving local authorities vulnerable to an increased risk of challenge, projects being delayed and increased costs.

    In this session, public law specialists Olivia Carter, Amy Tschobotko and Victoria Barman discussed the following topics when service change is contemplated:

    • do you need to consult and, if so, at what stage
    • how to facilitate compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty
    • key considerations relating to decision making, delegated powers and report writing
