Peer Challenge 2019

“Rutland County Council is an ambitious and customer responsive council delivering good quality services with high performance levels.” 


In November 2019, Rutland County Council invited Peers from the Local Government Association to meet with our elected members, staff and partners to understand what life is like in Rutland, what we are doing well and where we could improve.

Peer Challenges are recognised improvement tools used by local authorities to identify their strengths and improvement areas. Find out more about the Local Government Association Peer Challenge

The focus of Rutland’s Challenge was on Leadership and Challenges to Change in Rutland.

Next Steps

Responding to the feedback in the report, we will be engaging with residents to shape our future approach to communication, engagement, co-design and co-production. 

Feedback from this will inform our communication and engagement strategy and how we develop a 50 year vision for the county.

Councillor Oliver Hemsley will be meeting residents throughout the spring and we will be conducting a survey of residents.

To be part of this engagement email myrutland@rutland.gov.uk
