Will Local Currency cause inflation?

In a word, no. Local currency, gradually issued, is inflation-proof. When people are utterly dependent on sterling there will always be unmet financial needs just as there will always be unemployment. Local currency allows local people to use their own labour and effort to buy items they would otherwise not be able to obtain. It helps fill the gap between the amount of national currency in the community and the amount of money needed by the community to flourish. Where there is no local currency, this gap is filled with loans and debt. This situation further decreases the amount of national currency available to spend locally. A local currency can help free people from the vicious cycle of debt.
