Local Government Association (LGA) Peer Review

The LGA Peer Review process is designed to support the council's performance by identifying its areas of strength and areas for development. The Peer Review is conducted by a team of people with a wide range of experience and knowledge about local government. The process focuses on the following:

  1. Understanding of the local place and priority setting: Does the council understand its local context and place and use that to inform a clear vision and set of priorities?
  2. Leadership of Place: Does the council provide effective leadership of place through its elected members, officers and constructive relationships and partnerships with external stakeholders?
  3. Organisational leadership and governance: Is there effective political and managerial leadership supported by good governance and decision-making arrangements that respond to key challenges and enable change and transformation to be implemented?
  4. Financial planning and viability: Does the council have a financial plan in place to ensure long term viability and is there evidence that it is being implemented successfully?
  5. Capacity to deliver: Is organisational capacity aligned with priorities and does the council influence, enable and leverage external capacity to focus on agreed outcomes?

The council's most recent LGA Peer Review was in February 2018. A report outlining the outcomes of this review is available here: pdf icon Mansfield District Council CPC - Final Report [341kb].
