  • Professionalism
  • Integrity
  • Fair Dealing
  • Responsiveness
  • Commitment to Quality and Excellence
  • Flexibility
  • Value for Money

Our Vision

Strategies To Meet
Community Needs

Our aim is to help you understand what your community really needs and wants, and then to develop short and long term plans to meet these expectations. Underpinning these will be effective discussions with all the groups you represent, and considering alternative approaches to meeting your goals.

Best Practice
Governance and Skills

We strive to ensure that you meet current statutory requirements, your governance processes are fit for purpose and your audit risks minimised. We understand the skills and knowledge Councillors and Staff will need for you to be effective in these areas, and the best structures to enable you to deliver on your plans.

Cost-effectiveService Delivery

In times of financial constraint you need to know that you are avoiding waste wherever possible and making the best use of your resources. LGRC appraisals can pay for themselves over and over again in identifying new efficiencies and service innovations. Different ways of working can free up time and money to use on valued projects.
