The analysis of local provision involves the study of both local government and local governance. Both are a key element of social policy formation and provision. Local government structures are subject to constant reorganisation and there is continuous tension between central and local concerns. The development of local governance is best considered in terms of four main phases, the latest involving the introduction of new partnership systems and pressures for civic renewal and engagement. These are presenting new challenges and questions about the configuration of local governance.
