Members of the Local Government and Regeneration Committee have been closely involved throughout the development of the Local Government Benchmarking Framework, but other Members will likely be less familiar with the framework, why it was established, and how the data could be used by councils, stakeholders, MSPs and the general public.

The Benchmarking Framework can be accessed via the Improvement Service website.
