The Comprehensive Performance Assessment 2006 results showed that:

79 per cent. of councils achieve three or four star performance;

77 per cent. of councils are improving strongly or improving well;

No councils are in the bottom Comprehensive Performance Assessment category.

The improvements in performance that local government continue to make has paved the way for the proposals for the new performance framework, outlined in our White Paper 'Strong and prosperous communities'.
