Suite support from the LGA

Cllr Abi Brown highlights the range of support services offered by the Local Government Association to ensure councils have the right elements in place to be well-run authorities.

Earlier this month, the Government published the final version of its statutory Best Value guidance. It clarifies the definition of best value, the standards expected, and an escalation pathway involving the various models of statutory and non-statutory intervention.

In our Local Government Association (LGA) initial response, we highlighted that the guidance reiterates our call for all English councils to have a corporate or finance peer challenge (CPC) every five years and how we will continue to work closely with all councils to assist in their planning for this.
