Isle of Wight Council – Corporate Peer Challenge Report
File Size: 195kb    Report Click here to see more information about the document

A voluntary corporate peer review challenge into the Isle of Wight Council’s overall leadership and governance, how it works – and its capacity to deliver and meet future challenges took place in April 2014.

The peer challenge - at the request of the council - was carried out through the Local Government Association (LGA), and was conducted by councillors and officers from other councils as well as the LGA.

The Isle of Wight Council has published the findings of a voluntary corporate peer challenge which concludes that the council has made sound progress over the last year, but that the council recognises it is in transition and is presented with significant challenges.

The team undertook a review of council documentation and carried out a four-day visit, holding focus groups and meetings with staff, senior officers, councillors and partner organisations – as well as feedback sessions.

Peer challenges are not inspections, but designed to help councils further their improvement agendas by inviting the views of a ‘critical friend’.
