Richard Walters, CPL’s director – commercial, said: “We’re delighted that CPL has been appointed to produce LGA’s flagship magazine. It is a key membership benefit and the number one way in which members find out about the work of the LGA.
“We are looking forward to working with the LGA team to continue making first a useful and relevant publication, both for now and for the future.”
