Abstract

This article takes up some interesting developments on public services reform in a rural context in England. It considers: (1) current issues in public service delivery in rural areas; (2) the opportunities and barriers around changing delivery models, using the example of community-led asset transfer – Jubilee Park in Lincolnshire; and (3) whether other communities are capable of filling gaps in provision left by public sector service deliverers.
