The Rogers Review sets out the national enforcement priorities for local regulatory services in England.
The review team – led by Peter Rogers, chief executive of Westminster City Council – identified more than 60 policy areas enforced by local authorities.
They considered the views of government departments, local authorities, the public and businesses, before deciding which areas to prioritise. The areas they identified were:
The team’s recommendations were accepted in full by the Government as part of the March 2007 budget. The Local Better Regulation Office will be reviewing the priorities in three years as part of the Government’s ongoing commitment to improve communication and discussion with local authorities.
Another key aim of the Review was to promote best practice across all local authorities, and this is already starting to happen as different areas discuss the most effective way to tackle each of the priority areas.
The final report from the Rogers Review, and a supplementary report ‘Determining national priorities for local authority enforcement services’, can be downloaded here.
There are also presentations and posters available for download, which outline what the report’s findings mean for local regulators.
