Opened 1 Feb 2018

Results updated 18 Apr 2018




We are conducting a consultation seeking your views on our Draft Performance Improvement Objectives for 2018/2019.  The Council recognises the importance of consultation in all aspects of the implementation of its statutory duties and invites you to take part in this public consultation exercise.
Under the Local Government Act (NI) 2014, Councils must put arrangements in place to secure continuous improvement when carrying out their functions.  This means that each financial year we are required to set objectives for improving how we carry out our functions and to put in place arrangements to achieve these objectives.

Each improvement objective must bring about improvement in at least one of the following aspects:

• Strategic effectiveness
• Service quality
• Service availability
• Fairness
• Sustainability
• Efficiency
• Innovation

Our four Performance Improvement Objectives for 2018/2019 are:

1. Provide and promote more opportunities for people to improve their physical, mental and social wellbeing through partnership working and increased participation.

2. Improve economic growth across the Borough.

3. To develop and promote the built, natural and cultural heritage, creating vibrant and attractive urban and rural areas.

4. Increase customer satisfaction and accessibility to council services.  As a new Council we are still undergoing significant change and development, further developing our strategic planning frameworks. In conjunction with our statutory partners and through a process of ongoing consultation the Borough Community Plan has been published April 2017. 

The draft performance improvement objectives for 2018-2019 have been developed to align with the Programme for Government, Borough Community Plan, and our new corporate priorities as set out in our Draft Corporate Plan (2018-2023): Community, Economy, Committed Council, Place.  They have also been influenced by other regional and local strategies and areas identified by Council departments which are a focus for improvement over the period 2018-2019. The performance improvement objectives incorporate, where relevant, statutory performance standards and indicators for Waste, Planning and Economic Development as set out in the Local Government (Performance Indicators and Standards) Order (NI) 2015.
