Local London > What we do > Programmes


Local London manages major programmes on behalf of our nine member authorities which are worth around £85 million in total. These programmes address issues that are relevant to multiple boroughs and create economies of scale. They have either been devolved to Local London from Government, GLA or the European Union, or allocated to Local London following successful bids.
