How does your local authority perform?

March 4, 2015

A Scottish Parliament Committee is currently consulting on a benchmarking website which allows you to compare your local authority with others on a whole range of measures. 

Visit LGBF websiteThe Local Government and Regeneration Committee is examining how the SOLACE/Improvement Service benchmarking framework helps the public engage with the work of local councils.

The Local Government Benchmarking Framework contains a wide range of information about how Scottish councils perform in delivering better services to local communities, including the cost of services and how satisfied citizens are with them.   Put simply, it allows members of the public to measure the performance of their local council against other councils across Scotland.

The Committee wants to hear people's views on the Benchmarking system, and will take their views into account when taking evidence from IS and SOLACE Scotland on 25 March 2015 on the benchmarking system. m See more on how to submit your views at http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/parliamentarybusiness/CurrentCommittees/87203.aspx.

Please submit your views by Friday 13 March 2015.
