The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister consultation document Inspection Reform: The Future of Local Services Inspection" invites discussion on the future role that inspection should play within a more flexible performance framework, and seeks views on the establishment of a local services inspectorate. This is part of the wider work being carried out across Government to reduce the amount of inspection and to rationalise the number of inspectorates from 11 to four, which will enable better co-ordination and reduce duplication.

The consultation closed on 3 March 2006, and we are now considering the responses, which will help to formulate future policy decisions on the shape of local government inspection.
