Benchmarking against other councils

Benchmarking helps councils compare how they are performing with others.

Local Government Benchmarking Framework (LGBF)

This dataset allows us to compare our performance against other councils for a set of efficiency, output, and outcome indicators across Council services. Publication of LGBF indicators forms a part of our statutory requirements for public performance reporting.
