Councils' response to the financial challenges: Key messages from the Wales Audit Office preliminary corporate assessments
25 November 2010

We reviewed all of the 22 corporate assessments, to examine whether councils are well placed to respond effectively to the financial challenges and identify the key lessons.

Our work shows that while many councils are becoming reasonably well placed to respond, almost all need to make progress with detailed financial and workforce planning to reduce costs and a few need urgent
improvement in key areas.
