Local Government



Hexagon Research and Consulting has a detailed knowledge and understanding of the emerging local governance agenda – Partnerships and partnership working within and between various sectors, Best Value and Best Value Audits, 21st Century Government, governance issues and the potential impact of the next Council elections and multi-member wards.

We have undertaken several projects for COSLA and the new Improvement Service for Scottish Local Government and have worked for and with a wide range of Scottish local authorities.

Along with undertaking work commissioned by local authorities many of our nationally commissioned projects involve council case studies. Over the last year we have carried out case studies in over 20 Scottish councils.
