Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council – Assessment of Progress to Address Key Concerns
15 April 2021

This report sets out our assessment of the Council’s progress in addressing the concerns identified in our letter issued to the Council in May 2019, and those identified in the September 2019 John Gilbert report, and the December 2019 Improvement and Assurance Board’s Rapid Assessment report. In this report, we also set out remaining areas of concern and make a series of recommendations under the Public Audit Wales Act.

The Council has shown resilience in its response to recent challenges and has made progress in developing an improvement plan, but it urgently needs to address its lack of capacity to drive the transformation needed, and use its available resources to strengthen its resilience over the medium to long term.
