Women in local government

Gender equity is a priority for CLGF members and the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth is working towards gender equity and has set a target of a minimum of 30 per cent of women in public life – both in elected leadership positions and administration – including at the local level. A key focus is developing strategies to increase women's participation in decision making.

National census of local authority councillors 2018 - England

The Local Government Association (LGA) has carried out the eighth Census of Local Authority Councillors in England. This census provides the most comprehensive, timely overview of local government representation and, with previous years’ data, how that has changed over time. The results will help to inform central and local government and political groups in the development of strategies and policies for local government.
