LGA Peer Findings

We invited a group of ‘Peer Assessors’ from the Local Government Association (LGA) to spend a few days with us in June. Their role was to help us reflect on our working practices, relationships, ambitions and aspirations. The Assessors met with officers and members, and we’re grateful for the warmth of our welcome and the openness, and the quality of conversations they had with us.

Based on the information we shared with them, they produced a report that gives an honest insight into the current challenges that we face, and some suggestions on how we can address them. It also shows us our areas of progress and excellence, not least our regional leadership qualities and the focus on growing the local economy.
