The report on the council’s performance in the first quarter of the financial year was done using the previous corporate priorities that were replaced by the new corporate statement for 2019-23 on 10 October 2019. There was improved performance for the period under review, with twenty of the twenty eight measures being reported as either exceeding, reaching or within the 5% target and eight below target.
The new administration would be reviewing the council’s performance, particularly the areas of concern with a view to improving performance. Between now and March 2020, officers in consultation with Members, would be identifying new targets in line with the recently adopted cross party corporate statement, to run from April 2020. In the meantime the council would continue to use targets set under the previous corporate priorities.
Councillor Campbell spoke under Council Procedure Rule 20.1.
Councillor Yates proposed, Councillor Albon seconded and Members agreed to note the Council’s performance for the period up to 30 June 2019.
