To report back on performance against targets in the 2018/19 corporate plan. To recommend the corporate performance indicator targets for 2019/20.
The Director, Corporate Services and Governance presented a report to advise Cabinet of the year-end performance for 2018/19 and proposed performance indicator targets for 2019/20.
The Council meeting on 11 February 2019 agreed the Corporate Plan for 2019/20 which sets out the council’s strategic direction and outlines 7 key work programmes for 2019/20.
The Overview and Scrutiny committee considered the year-end performance for 2018/19 and proposed performance indicator targets for 2019/20 at their meeting on 13 June. Most indicators are proposed to retain the same targets for 2019/20.
The full report to the Overview and Scrutiny committee, and the minutes of their meeting are available here.
Councillor Forward thanked officers and the Overview and Scrutiny Committee for their work.
Councillor Forward proposed approval of the recommendations of the report, seconded by Councillor Rogers.
1. That the comments of the Overview and Scrutiny committee be considered.
2. That the year-end performance for 2018/19 and proposed performance indicator targets for 2019/20 be approved.
3. That Cabinet support intentions for performance arrangements during 2019/20.
Reasons for the decision:
The council's Corporate Plan is one of the key documents by which the council is held to account for its performance, therefore honest and transparent reporting back of how well we performed against targets in the previous year is essential. Local people and staff also need to be aware of the targets and standards we have set ourselves, and where any of these targets have changed from previous years we need to be clear about the reasons why.
