We are committed to the continuous improvement of our service delivery. Underpinning our Council Plan 2016 to 2020 priorities is a cross cutting theme to ensure we:
- remain a low tax council
- drive efficiency
- use technology to improve customer access
- speed up processes
- transactions and decisions
- enter into partnerships and service delivery arrangements that improve service and reduce cost.
Performance management is an integral part of the corporate planning process. We are committed to reviewing our performance and strive to achieve high standards and to make sure that we are meeting the needs of our communities in the most effective way.
The Annual Report 2015/16 sets out our achievements against the stated council plan priorities for the previous year and can be viewed below.
The council has a Performance Panel, appointed by Scrutiny Committee, which reviews performance and financial monitoring information that supports delivery of the Council Plan and budget strategy. Recommendations for action including areas suggested for further review are reported to Scrutiny Committee. Performance reports are available on our Committees and their meetings webpage.
