Policy Library

The CLA is your voice in Government. We influence Government policy at local, national and European level by arguing our members' case from a strong base of evidence, informing key decision-makers and opinion-formers of our members' needs. CLA experts represent the interests of members at all stages in policy development and legislative process and regularly succeed in effecting significant change.

In this section find a searchable collection of CLA policy and lobbying documents, including consultation responses, briefings, letters to MPs and policy reports.
