Council performance

Performance management is at the heart of good management. For West Lindsey District Council, it helps to ensure that we are achieving what we set out to do, giving value for money and making life better for our citizens.

To support performance management, the council must be able to measure its performance. Successful organisations measure their performance in order to know how well they are performing and identify and take action to improve.

The council manages itself by its performance against a set of key indicators, and by monitoring the progress made against the Corporate Plan.

All reports relating to performance are submitted to either the Performance Overview and Scrutiny Committee (Pre April 2011) or Policy and Resources Committee (Post April 2011). To view the archive to these committees please follow the link to Council Committees, Agendas and Minutes.

Corporate Peer Challenge

In January 2020, the Local Government Association (LGA) carried out a Corporate Peer Challenge, to review the health and direction of the council and our work. It is something that is offered to all councils every four or five years.

The Corporate Peer Challenge is not an inspection, it is a process by which a small team of fellow councillors and officers from other Councils, (coordinated by the LGA) take a look at the council’s systems, processes and outcomes, make recommendations and share learning.
