Corporate Peer Challenge

Meeting: 27/03/2018 - Cabinet (Item 205)

205 Corporate Peer Challenge

Report byDr Carlton Brand, CorporateDirector

Supporting documents:


The Leader presented the report which provided cabinet with the feedback report received from the Local Government Association following the Corporate Peer Challenge that took place in November 2017; and the draft action plan which had been developed to reflect the feedback and recommendations made.


Matters highlighted in the course of the presentation and discussion included: the composition of the team undertaking the review; the methodology of the review; the positive messages arising from the review, and the areas for further action; that the Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee would be considering how best to add value to the process of implementing the recommendations and would be reviewing progress in 6 months; how the changes in national planning guidance will impact on the plans to support housing growth; and a recognition that current additional pressures meant that there may be some slippage on the delivery of actions.




1.    To note the feedback and recommendations from the Corporate Peer Challenge;


2.    To approve the draft action plan and receive an update on implementation in 2019; and


3.    To note the offer of a follow up visit in two years to help the Council assess the impact of the peer challenge and demonstrate the progress it has made against the areas of improvement and development identified by the peer team.
