London Technical Advisers Group
Coordinated and comprehensive advice and support to technical advisers employed by local authorities directly or indirectly to manage and advise on their services.
The London Technical Advisers Group (LoTAG) maintains a technical network for local government professionals and co-opted members in the highway and transport fields. It provides a centre for professional advice and assistance for local policy development and service delivery on a London wide basis.
All the London local authorities and Transport for London are automatically eligible to be members of LoTAG and are represented through the working groups, which meet on a regular basis, usually every 10 to 12 weeks
This enables officers from all these authorities to participate in all LoTAG activities. LoTAG is part of a national organisation the Local Government Technical Advisers Group (LGTAG) from which policy influence and universal standards evolve. The LGTAG membership fee includes LoTAG so there is only one fee to cover your membership of both levels.
LoTAG is the regional grouping of TAG comprising a group of professional officers who advise the London Borough elected members on their statutory duties as the Highway and Traffic Authority.
