This question was answered on 26th October 2021

Since September, the Secretary of State has held meetings with the chair of the Local Government Association, has met with the M10 network of Metro Mayors, and has spoken at the Local Government Association's Councillors' Forum, comprised of councillors representing different political parties from councils across England and Wales. He has also met with the chair of the County Councils Network. Other Ministers from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities continue to meet regularly with councils and local government representative bodies.

Further to this, my Department continues to lead the Government's significant and regular engagement with councils and local government sector bodies throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, to ensure information is getting to councils and that we are made aware of any areas of concern.
