It is essential that as a council we provide value for money. This means ensuring that public money is spent efficiently to provide an effective service. Our aim therefore is to get more council activity for the least possible expense without compromising quality.
Lydney Town Council regularly assess ‘value for money’, and questions whether it is really necessary to spend the money or whether it can find a way of addressing a service more efficiently. As part of our commitment to continued improvement we consult other councils and engage with other service users and the wider community to find out what they think and will join with other councils to deliver a more economic service to the community as and where appropriate.
The Council’s Financial Regulations and a number of statutes and procedures provide the Council with the tools it needs to achieve its goals, protect community assets and make best use of public money.
Lydney Town Council recognises the importance of using its resources in an efficient way and one that is shown to give Value for Money.
|Our Efficiency & Value for Money Policy shows how we seek to operate in an efficient way.|
