After an intensive visit back in March, the Local Government Association (LGA) has given their feedback on Oadby and Wigston Borough Council, alongside some ideas on facing future challenges.
The Council welcomed an experienced LGA team which contained elected members and officers from other councils of different political persuasions to receive a 'Corporate Peer Challenge'. Peer challenges like these are a common way of helping build best-practice amongst councils and Local Authorities.
The voluntary visit comprised of interviews with both staff and Councillors - plus an extensive scrutiny of Council process, policies and forward strategy. The LGA have issued a positive report which summarises their findings based on their recent visit to Oadby and Wigston Borough Council.
Cllr John Boyce, Leader of Oadby and Wigston Borough Council said:
"We welcome and thank the LGA for their visit and feedback. We are pleased they recognised much of the great work and successes we have achieved recently - particularly on our health and wellbeing agenda.
"We are now working through the recommendations, to help us to carry on improving the delivery of services for our residents."
