"If people want to do it, say you have two or three local authorities who believe the benefits are there, what tends to happen is that the complications fall away.”

Simplicity the key to shared services

PA’s Karen Cherrett, local government expert, is quoted in an article in Room 151. Karen gives her view on why local authorities must beware of overcomplicating when sharing services. Room151 is an online news, opinion and resource centre, focusing on capital funding, risk and investment.

Karen says that there is “a degree of truth” in councils overcomplicating. She comments: “If people want to do it, say you have two or three local authorities who believe the benefits are there, what tends to happen is that the complications fall away,” she says. “If people over complicate within government structures it is either because they are trying to satisfy demons that don’t exist, or they are not clear with the primary stakeholder, and I mean the decision makers, be they politicians or executive team members, that they really want to do  it.”
