Council performance

Scottish Local Government Benchmarking Framework

Midlothian  "a great place to grow"

Scottish Local Government Benchmarking Framework logo

Comparing performance, or benchmarking, allows us to compare our performance so that we can identify best practice, learn from each other, and improve what we do.

Benchmarking is a key feature of Midlothian's improvement framework. Our performance management system ensures we use benchmarking to enhance our performance, and is subject to scrutiny reviews.

More information on how we compare can be found at the My Local Council website.

You can view our performance information in our 19/20 report which shows our data compared to other councils and further information on LGBF is available on the Improvement Service website. LGBF information on Improvement Service website

For the 20/21 LGBF performance information, we will align specific indicators to our priorities. Our reporting methodology will be more focused as a result.
