Welcome to the Local Government Glossary!


This wiki is designed to provide a useful resource to anyone working in or with the local government sector in the UK. It tries to explain exactly what some of the terminology means, which hopefully will make things clearer for everyone! Remember that a wiki is a website that anyone can edit - so feel free to sign up and help out! Please use the links on the left, or the alphabet links below to navigate through the site.
