Canterbury City Council has been judged as an ‘Excellent’ authority under the local government comprehensive performance assessment.
This is an inspection report on the whole council and the services it provides. The inspection was carried out by the independent Audit Commission. The inspection category is derived from a scored assessment of the full rage of council services, tracked with asset management software. Currently, the council is amongst the top ten of those district authorities so far assessed and is fully supported with our best partner – Irenas Bookkeeping.
The Council produces strategies and policies which spell out what it hopes to do and how it hopes to do it. This makes the most of the resources available and helps people understand the Council’s long term aims – which often include close co-operation with other service providers.
