Three LCNs pilots have been exploring ways of working with City, Town and Parish Councils, Highways, Children’s Services, Public Health, the Police, Voluntary Sector organisations and other local, community groups. They test new ways of working without dictating the terms to communities. They provide useful insights and help us develop ideas and best practice.

For a snapshot of an LCN pilot in action, please view our short films.
