To consider a report from the Director of Finance (Section 151 Officer) (copy enclosed)
Members had before them a report from the Director of Finance (Section 151 Officer) which provided Cabinet with an update on corporate performance, measured against the new Council Plan Delivery Plan agreed in March 2022.
As a result of Local Government Reorganisation within Cumbria, a 12 month extension to the existing four year Council Plan 2018-22 had been agreed and would now run until March 2023. This supported a consistent focus on delivery of the broader outcomes across the Council in a rapidly changing working landscape.
Overall 38 of the 63 indicators had been met, or were on track, 19 were amber and 5 were rated red. Compared to the previous quarter this showed a slightly worsening position, with 1 more indicator now red, and 2 fewer indicators rated green.
The Cabinet Member representing Hindpool hoped that once the Fire and Rescue Service moved across to the Police and Crime Commissioner the same community focus would still be maintained. Recently there had been 3 fires in her division and the Fire Service had responded and dealt with these in a very effective manner. The role the Fire and Rescue Service played in supporting the Council’s supporting people agenda, could not be understated.
RESOLVED, that Cabinet notes the overall performance relating to delivery of the four Council Plan outcomes and context indicators for the quarter ending 30 September 2022.
