In 1988, Local Authority Publishing Co. Ltd was formed by former management of the United Publishing Group. Between them, the new management team had in excess of 70 years' experience.
Local Authority Publishing quickly established an excellent reputation with authorities and advertisers for producing high quality publications.
Since 1988 the Company has continued to expand and is based in its own freehold office building in East Sussex, where it continues to provide a first class service for its local authority clients. The Company is now the leading publisher of local authority and independent, area and specialist guides.
