JOINT STATEMENT BY THE AUDIT COMMISSION AND TORBAY COUNCIL
The Audit Commission and Torbay Council are pleased to announce that they have reached an amicable settlement of Torbay's legal challenge to the comprehensive performance assessment.
Torbay has accepted the legality of the CPA and the commission has agreed there can be a further corporate assessment when the council reasonably believes it has made sufficient progress. An agreement as to the costs of the action has also been reached which has protected the interests of the council tax payers of Torbay.
The Audit Commission and Torbay have both undertaken to make no further public statement on this matter.
