In March 2018 we welcomed nine visitors from the Local Government Association and from other councils across the country as we took part in a Corporate Peer Challenge for both Malvern Hills and Wychavon and councils. 

This was a critical but friendly look at both organisations to understand how we are performing and to receive independent recommendations on areas for consideration or improvement. During the visit the team spoke to around 150 people including managers, staff, councillors, businesses and external stakeholders. They gathered information and views from around 50+ meetings along with additional research and reading. 

You can read our pdf feedback report from the peer team here (372 KB) . It contains ten recommendations for both councils and six specific to Malvern Hills District Council. We are currently developing an action plan in response to the feedback.

You can read the pdf position statement (2.66 MB) we prepared for our peer team prior to their visit. This outlines the context for our councils, key drivers, issues and challenges.
