Best Value Performance

Performance results and plans and targets. This section also includes reports from external Audits (Audit Commission) on the Council's performance.

Best Value is about Economy, Effectiveness, Efficiency, (the three E's). It's also about Quality, Local Choice and Accountability and how we strive to continuously improve on the services we deliver.

We are looking to constantly improve our services and we reported our performance every year in the Best Value Performance Plan (BVPP). We no longer produce a Best Value Performance Plan but the information can now be found in our Annual Report.

For the Council an important aspect of performance measurement is ensuring that our data is accurate and complete. The Audit Commission refer to this as 'Data Quality' and carry out regular inspections to ensure we are meeting the high standards of accuracy that we're aiming for.
