Powys County Council’s first corporate self-assessment report is now available to view on its website.

Covering April 2021 to March 2022, the document collates information gathered from a variety of sources, demonstrating how the Council:

  • Exercises its functions effectively
  • Uses resources economically, efficiently, and effectively
  • Is underpinned by effective governance

The aim of the report is to present an honest, reflective assessment of how the Council has performed in the last 12 months; what has worked well, what needs to improve and what needs to be done differently for the people of Powys.

This report also details how the Council has delivered against the well-being objectives and measures which form Vision 2025, the current Corporate Improvement Plan, and the Strategic Equality Plan.

Cllr James Gibson-Watt, Leader and Cabinet Member for an Open and Transparent Powys, said: “Under the new legislation, the Council is expected to develop and publish a self-assessment report once in every financial period.

“This report indicates how the Council is delivering at a strategic level and how processes are reviewed to ensure they are working correctly.

“This is a reflective process, and both good practice and areas for improvement have been identified and will be used to improve how the Council works, and ultimately, supports the people of Powys.

“This is also a report for the people of Powys, and we would welcome everyone sharing their views on how effective they feel we are as your Council”.
