This is an interesting document which very much sounds a localist tone as well as promising lots of extra money for the sector.  

I think most people in local government, would, in isolation from wider macro- economic concerns largely support these measures, particularly those designed to support housing and social care.  The two imponderables are - in general terms - will Labour's overall macro-economic policies grow the economy to support public spending to this degree and, very much linked to that, in a time of difficult spending choices with pressure from the NHS, police, defence etc, will local government survive any rationing? History shows that all parties of government, protect the centre before they protect local government.
