LACORS - Government Department


LACORS (the Local Authorities Coordinators of Regulatory Services)


LACORS (the Local Authorities Coordinators of Regulatory Services) is the local government central body responsible for overseeing local authority regulatory and related services in the United Kingdom.

What are regulatory services?
Regulatory Services are a group of services which exist to protect the public. LACORS coordinates the regulatory services delivered by local government. These range from protecting consumers against illegal door stop selling to checking hygiene standards in restaurants and food factories.

LACORS’ customers
The LACORS website and services are available to customers in the United Kingdom who deal with LACORS; namely local authority heads of regulatory services, front line officers, elected members, officers from central bodies, staff and officials from partner organisations such as central government departments and professional bodies.

Individual businesses and members of the public should contact their trade association or local authority.

How is LACORS funded?
LACORS is a local government central body created by the United Kingdom local authority associations which comprise of the Local Government Association (LGA), Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA), Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) and Northern Ireland Local Government Association (NILGA). LACORS is mainly funded from local government monies. In England and Wales money is ‘top sliced’ from the Revenue Support Grant.

How does LACORS work?
Central to LACORS’ work is the promotion of quality regulation, development of policy and dissemination of comprehensive advice, guidance and good practice for local authority regulatory services. This is distributed through this website and via e-mail bulletins to heads of service and also specialist officers. LACORS is assisted in its work by a network of local authority advisers and recognised experts.

LACORS consults with advisers and stakeholders on a range of issues via its Policy Forums and Focus Groups. Representatives meet to discuss key strategic and policy issues affecting regulatory services to help focus LACORS’ work.
