The council is responsible for a vast range of services and resources. It is essential that we have an overall, corporate approach to service delivery and improvement. With this approach, we successfully balance competing priorities and maintain an overview of our performance across the whole council.

Performance is reviewed each quarter by assessing progress against objectives and targets, so that corrective action can be taken promptly if needed.

Latest quarterly performance data

At the end of each quarter, the Chief Executive provides a high level summary report of performance across all services to the Executive. This report identifies achievements as well as areas of concern and demonstrates how action is being taken where it is required.

The Council Plan overview report provides an overview of the council's performance.

Performance against key indicators

We measure a wide range of quantifiable performance data across our services. We have identified those indicators that we consider to be key and which give an overall picture of the operational activity of our core activities and services. Across the council, these show that the current status is:

  • 2 (5%) amber – (between 5% and 10% of target)
