NAWDO press statement – Local Government Chronicle
Tuesday 13th December 2022


NAWDO welcomes the inclusion of pEPR within the finance policy statement, and is encouraged that it is referred to as additional funding. Local authorities, both upper and lower tier, need certainty over the implementation of the policies set out in the Resources and Waste Strategy, which will require significant extra investment in order to deliver against the challenging targets and aspirations set out in that strategy. NAWDO would encourage the Government to release further information on its core waste and resources policies as soon as possible, including concrete details on how much funding local authorities should expect to receive to implement the required changes to their services.
