Annual Report 2017
The Council's 2016-17 Annual Report gives us the chance to reflect on our eighth year and our first full year of working towards the Council Plan, Helping the Borough Thrive. During the year we have made significant progress in the plan's 10 outcome areas. This report outlines our achievements and shows how we continue to deliver innovation and high quality services against a challenging financial climate.
Local Government Association peer review
In March 2017 the Local Government Association (LGA) reviewed the performance of all of the services that the Council provides, with a particular focus on health and social care integration and sub-regional working.
The LGA has published a full report of its findings, which include recognition of strong leadership, sound financial management and high quality services. It also includes recommendations to further accelerate our priorities.
Local Authorities are measured in many ways to ensure that they deliver best value to the residents and continue to improve.
