Martin Swales sets out a vision for his Presidency

Last week the new Solace President spoke to the sector press about his vision for his two-year Presidency.

In February, the Solace Policy Board will meet for the first time with the new President and will discuss the key challenges impacting on the sector and where Solace should focus on its policy energy over the coming months. We can expect the next spending round to take centre stage during 2019 and while Brexit will dominate the national agenda and continue to push domestic down the agenda, Solace will continue to pursue progress in other areas on behalf of local government. if you have views on an area on which we should focus on specific proposals we should be making to Government, please contact
