The Local Government Association (LGA) has called on those working in or with local government to provide feedback on how the improvement and assurance framework can be improved.

The LGA has been talking to councils, professional bodies and other stakeholders over the summer, seeking feedback on a draft framework for the sector.

The association is now seeking the sector’s views on the principles of assurance and accountability, examples of good practice and on revised diagrams showing the elements of the improvement and assurance framework and asking for ideas on how the framework can be improved.

Cllr Abi Brown, chairman of the LGA’s Improvement and Innovation Board, said: ‘Feedback from our initial engagement was really helpful, and has helped us to extend our mapping of the improvement and assurance framework for local government, which hasn’t previously been written down anywhere.

‘We are taking on board all comments received and now want to follow up with some more detailed questions about how the current framework can be improved.

‘It's important we hear the views of all councils, partners and all other stakeholders and I encourage everyone to engage with us, for the benefit of the whole of local government and the wider public.’
