London Councils’ Policy and Public Affairs (PAPA) directorate develops and makes the case to government and others for policies and resources designed to help boroughs deliver the best possible deal for their residents. Key policy themes include: London Councils’ services directorate is responsible for delivering a range of services directly to Londoners and London boroughs where leaders have identified a clear benefit in doing so. These services include: London Councils also provides administrative support to two independent appeals tribunals, based at Chancery Exchange, Holborn. These are:
  • The Road User Charging Adjudicators: an independent tribunal which decides appeals against Congestion Charging penalties and Low Emission Zone penalties in London.
  • The Environment and Traffic Adjudicators: who decide appeals relating to Penalty Charge Notices issued by Transport for London and the London local authorities for parking, bus lane, moving traffic, lorry control, littering and waste receptacle contraventions.
Both the Road User Charging Adjudicators and the Environment and Traffic Adjudicators are supported by London Tribunals (a part of London Councils).

Our services directorate also supports the work of the Young People’s Education and Skills (YPES) Board, the lead strategic body for 14 to 19 education and training services in London. The board is made up of key stakeholders and chaired by London Councils Executive Member for Skills and Employment, Cllr Clare Coghill (Waltham Forest).

And it administers a pan London Grants Scheme on behalf of Leaders and the Grants Committee. All 32 London boroughs and the City of London contribute to the grants programme which is run on their behalf by London Councils and aims to meet key areas of need in the capital.

The 2017-21 grants programme will see £6,173,133 split annually between 13 different projects dedicated to tackling some of the most serious issues affecting the capital.
