Service Catalogue

The LGMA is working on a project to catalogue all of the services provided to the public by local authorities.

The local government sector provides about 1,000 public services. The LGMA is working on a national project to produce one common catalogue of these services. 

The service catalogue will help to better inform the public about local authority services and how to access them.

How will the project be completed? 

This project is run by a Service Catalogue Project Team from the Local Government Management Agency (LGMA). A Programme Board provides governance for the project

Each local authority has nominated a single point of contact to help the LGMA in coordinating the project. The single point of contact will:

  • Liaise with the project team on behalf of their local authority 
  • Gather and review details on services in their local authority
  • Keep local authority staff updated and coordinate feedback 
  • Represent their local authority in project workshops

Project Updates

Catalogues completed so far 

The first phase of our project is completing the Local Government Service Catalogue by functional area in excel format. We have now completed this task for public facing services including: housing, environment, planning, roads and transportation, economic development, tourism, local enterprise, parks and open spaces, library services, and community services.

Consultation with local authority staff is an important part of our project in helping to identify and describe public facing services.
