New Report shows Council offers Best Value

Commenting on the Best Value Audit Report former Leader of Dumfries and Galloway Council, Councillor Ronnie Nicholson said;


“This independent report shows the massive turnaround in the council in recent years. It’s easy for people to forget that the last Audit Scotland report in 2009 was utterly scathing. It said the council had serious weaknesses and lacked political and managerial leadership. Now the report says in recent years there has been clear strategic direction and strong leadership, with the rate of progress increasing from 2014, but that the biggest threat comes from a lack of funding. I think council staff deserve enormous praise for their efforts in turning around the council in the face of massive Government cuts”.
