The LGA Corporate Peer Challenge (CPC) took place from Monday 24 to Thursday 27 January 2022.
The Corporate Peer Challenge is part of the LGA sector support offer. It provides independent and external improvement support and challenge through a peer review, conducted by a team of Members and Senior Officers from other local authorities.
The review is a tried, and trusted method of improvement and provides a practitioner perspective and critical friend challenge. The Royal Borough invited in the LGA to conduct the review, to provide an assessment of its progress and recommendations for further improvement. It was delivered at no cost to the council.
The 2022 review, was a Corporate Peer Challenge and covered five key areas:
- Local priorities and outcomes;
- Organisational and place leadership;
- Governance and culture;
- Financial planning and management;
- Capacity for improvement.
The 2022 Peer Review follows a prior review in 2017, and briefer progress review in 2019. The results of all of the reviews are published below, for public information.
The LGA Corporate Peer Challenge Feedback Report from the 2022 Peer Review has been received, and the council will publish an Action Plan by June 2022, setting out how we will be taking forward the recommendations.
