Introduction

Auditing the Future: 2009

To support you as you prepare for the 2009-19 LTCCP we have reviewed a selection of 2006- 16 LTCCPs. We provide some commentary on aspects of these LTCCPs that we consider to be good examples. We have stated publicly on many occasions that no council completed an LTCCP in 2006 that was strong in all areas. However, many local authorities had strengths in certain areas. Therefore, they are worthy of consideration as you prepare your LTCCP for 2009.

We have not completed a comprehensive review of the whole sector for the purposes of this newsletter. Instead we have tried to provide a range of good examples covering different aspects of the LTCCP from a range of types, locations, and sizes of local authorities. However, these examples should not be considered to be the only good examples.

We also note that good practice for LTCCPs is still evolving. These examples may be helpful while preparing the 2009-19 LTCCP. However, each local authority will need to review these examples against the evolving good practice within the sector and in terms of their own development since 2006.
