Thanet District Council Peer Review Report

Matthew Brown made this Freedom of Information request to Local Government Association

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Local Government Association,

Local Government Association Inspectors visited Thanet District Council in early March to carry out a Peer Review which I understand has been compiled into a (draft) report and handed to the council. I would very much like to see a copy of the report if possible as Thanet District Council seem very much to be trying to suppress the report.

If it is not appropriate to share draft reports could you perhaps give me an indication of under what time scale the report might reach a final draft status and be reasonably expected to be made publicly available.

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Brown

Despite the five emails sent two of which were asking for two other emails back the last email had a letter attached that seemed to say "no" and a HTML copy of the report. I'm a bit confused and the HTML report seems to have img tags with incomplete SRC urls so I've marked this as partial.
