The Council invited an independent team of peers from the Local Government Association to conduct a review of the Council’s operations. The review took place in December 2021 and the review team met with senior management, officers and external partners.
They looked at 6 keys areas:
1. Local priorities and outcomes
2. Organisational and place leadership
3. Governance and culture
4. Financial planning and management
5. Capacity for improvement
6. The Council’s approach to Economic Development.
The review generated an overview report of the findings which noted that Broxbourne Council is ‘an ambitious Council with a mix of opportunities and challenges’. Whilst the report was positive, there are a number of key recommendations on areas that could be improved. Overall the report was positive and identified a number of areas for further improvement. The Council is now preparing an action plan to address those recommendations.
