Independent Review of The Gathering event

A review carried out by Deloitte into The Gathering 2009 has made recommendations for future similar events involving the Council.

Chief Executive Sue Bruce said: "The independent review of the Gathering shows that, while the Council's actions were well intentioned, there are a number of lessons to be learned from the weaknesses in the Council's internal controls, governance and procedures that were evident in many aspects of the Council's involvement in the event and subsequent developments.

"The findings of Deloitte reinforce my view that a thorough review of the governance arrangements of the Council is required and this process has now started."

The City of Edinburgh Council on 30 June will be asked to note the report and the actions taken to address the recommendations.
