You may have seen in the LGA press release last week, that they have begun to map the different elements which currently provide assurance of the performance of local government in the interests of clarity and transparency and to improve everyone’s understanding of how they all fit together.
There is no one document or framework which sets out the performance framework for local government, and it is hoped that mapping such a framework would be useful – both for councils and the public.
To undertake this mapping, the LGA is having discussions with members of the local government sector, representatives of professional associations, and many other stakeholders. Part of this work includes working closely with the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. More information can be found on the following web page – with a survey to gain views from across the sector.
