The Audit Commission's Oneplace website is where you can see how local public services are performing in England, if they provide value for money and where they could improve. Cheltenham Borough Council is assessed annually for its use of resources and managing performance. You can make comparisons against other local authorities and look at copies of assessment reports.

The Audit Commission's local authority vfm profiles cover the following service groupings and compare performance across effectiveness, efficiency and economy:

  • adult social care services
  • children and young people
  • culture and sport
  • environmental services (waste management and street cleaning)
  • housing services and benefits administration
  • sustainable economy (transport services, highways, planning and       other regulatory services)
