I am running v10 of ArcGIS for Desktop.
I am aware of the OTB templates provided with ArcGIS.
- However, I would like to supplement these layouts with additional layouts.

enter image description here

I am also aware of the Map Template Gallery, but this seems to be more around data models and I am after the actual print layout templates.

In particular I am looking for Local Government style templates, but the only downloads I can find seem to be again around the data model side of things as opposed to the actual print templates.

Has anyone seen (perhaps on ArcScripts) a bundle of templates that I can add to ArcGIS Desktop so that I can switch to them in my Layout View?

If you don't find anything suitable to download it is very easy to create and organise your own map templates at ArcGIS 10:… – PolyGeo Nov 7 '11 at 6:32
and you may be able to help jumpstart the commmunity by "uploading" any templates you end up with to the gallery. – Brad Nesom Nov 7 '11 at 14:47
@Brad - Perhaps if there is no 'one resource' answer, then we could post this again in Meta, and using something like a public dropbox, everyone could upload their templates, and then we upload it to, from GIS-SE? – Simon Nov 7 '11 at 21:28
