To consider a report from the Director of Finance (Section 151 Officer) (copy enclosed)
The Leader presented a report from the Director of Finance, which provided Cabinet with a progress update on corporate performance, incorporating progress on the Council Plan Delivery Plan 2018/19 for the three month period from 1 July 2018 to 30 September 2018.
Cabinet noted that where performance was below target or baseline, action would be taken to improve performance and to bring it back on track.
The recommendations were intended to ensure public accountability for corporate performance and that the Council could demonstrate a good level of public performance reporting, enable Cabinet to celebrate areas of Council services that were performing well and to consider appropriate action if performance was not at an acceptable level, or the pace of improvement was slower than expected.
The overall position by the end of Quarter 2 2018/19 was that 78 of the 82 (95%) Council Plan Delivery Plan actions had delivered, met or were on track to meet the planned milestone, or were at risk of missing the planned milestone with a recovery plan in place. These were therefore rated green or amber. For the same period, 4 actions (5%) had missed a key milestone, did not fully deliver as intended and had therefore been rated red.
The Cabinet Member for Environment asked Cabinet to note that the County Council had recently achieved the Better Health at Work Award, Gold level. The council was assessed against 8 criteria which included the incorporation of health and wellbeing into strategies and workforce plan, participation in local, regional and national health campaigns, and how health topics were promoted in the wider community. Members were delighted to hear this.
RESOLVED that, Cabinet note overall performance relating to delivery of the three Council Plan outcomes and implementation of new ways of working, focusing on progress against the actions and metrics identified in Council Plan Delivery Plan 2018/19 for the 2nd quarter ending 30 September 2018.
