Is subject to call in?: Yes


(Time: 3.45pm to 4.00pm)


The Executive received and considered the Audit and Inspection letter 2006/07 submitted by the Audit Commission.  Members concluded that, in general, the Audit and Inspection Letter was complimentary to the Council, although it was accepted that some improvements were needed.  The Executive discussed the possibility of updating and improving its assessment score.  It was recognised that resources would have to be reallocated from another service if Members wished to improve its performance assessment and this would need to be set as a corporate priority.  Members concluded that as this would require additional resource that could be better spent on providing front-line services.  It was recognised that the Council's performance was better than it had been able to demonstrate in the past and this was one area that needed improvement. 




that the Audit and Inspection Letter 2006/07 be noted.
