My Local Council is an online performance portal where you can access performance information and external audit, inspection or regulatory reports about each council. My Local Council can be accessed here.
My Local Council is designed to be user-friendly and accessible and is aimed primarily at the public, but is also a valuable tool for councillors, officers and partners.
Through My Local Council you can compare a council’s performance in a particular service area against other councils or compare how a council has performed over time.
The portal uses a number of national performance indicators each year, National Strategic Indicators which are set by Welsh Government and Public Accountability Measures set by local government. The National Strategic Indicators will no longer be statutory from 2016-17, but councils have agreed to continue to collect them on a voluntary basis.
The performance information is updated annually in September and relates to the previous financial year (April – March), whilst external audit, inspection or regulatory reports are updated more regularly.
My Local Council is produced by the Local Government Data Unit on behalf of the WLGA. The Local Government Data Unit also produces the Scottish equivalent of My Local Council on behalf of COSLA and its Improvement Service. The Scottish portal can be accessed here.
