Minutes:

7.1      Cllr Mark Hawthorne reported to Cabinet the proposed Action Plan in response to the recommendations of the Local Government Association’s (LGA) recent Corporate Peer Review of Gloucestershire County Council.

 

7.2      Gloucestershire County Council invited the LGA to undertake a Corporate Peer Challenge during November 2023. The feedback report was initially brought to Cabinet in January and contained much to be proud of. It recognised the talent and skill of councillors and officers, a strong commitment to delivering services that make a difference for local people. Given the significant financial challenges facing many councils at this time, it was particularly pleasing to note that the report also found that the overall financial position of the council was seen to be in a good place.

7.3      The report went on to make a number of recommendations as detail within the report. All of the recommendations had now been addressed in an action plan that has been developed by council officers with input from cabinet members, Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee, senior leaders, and officers across the council.

 

7.4      Summarising the five recommendations addressed within the action plan, Cllr Hawthorne reflected on the progress that had already been made.

 

Having considered all the information, Cabinet noted the report and

 

RESOLVED to:

 

Approve the action plan appended to the report in response to the recommendations arising from the Local Government Association’s Corporate Peer Review of Gloucestershire County Council.
