Annual Report

Our Annual Report is designed to help residents and members of the business community in the District of Blaby, find out what we do and how well we do it. You can download the latest report at the bottom of the page.

Trade Union Facility Time

Under the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirement) Regulations 2017, there is a requirement for public sector employers to publish annual information on the amount of time used by employees who are trade union representatives in respect of their duties.

We are always looking for ways to improve and would be very interested to hear your comments about the report and any information you feel we could include in the future.

Peer Challenge

The Peer Challenge helps us respond to its local priorities and issues in its way to greatest effect. It is judged by experienced elected members and senior officers from other local government organisations and makes key recommendations as well as an action plan to ensure they are followed through.

In their report, the last Peer Challenge said that the Council was: “a great council which is performing well with no major concerns. There are many examples of good services and projects with a strong focus on doing the right thing for Blaby’s residents and customers at all levels of the organisation.

“The Council has many strengths and a good track record of delivering high-quality services with highly committed and empowered staff. The challenge now is to think about how the council manages considerable change in resources and continues to be sustainable for the future whilst holding onto the ‘Blaby Way’.”

Blaby Residents Survey

Every two years we carry out a general survey with residents of the district.

Other results included that the most popular method people preferred to hear about services and performance was via the Council's email newsletters, followed by Community Magazines and the website.
