Wirral Council Improvement Plan

The Improvement Plan, included as Appendix 1, has been developed in response to the External Assurance Review commissioned by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC). The External Assurance Review was undertaken as a condition of the Council’s request for exceptional financial support from the government in 2020/21 and 2021/22. The development of an Improvement Plan and its effective implementation is a condition of the government granting this support for 2021/22.


The Improvement Plan also responds to the report and recommendations arising from the Local Government Association (LGA) Corporate Peer Challenge in March 2022. The Corporate Peer Challenge report is included as Appendix 2 to this report.
