To consider the report of the Director (LD) (reference 17/136), attached.
The Cabinet considered a report by the Director (LD) (Reference 17/136) in respect of the Council’s performance at the end of the final quarter of 2016/17. With the permission of the Chairman, Councillor Cluer addressed the Cabinet, querying why in the Critical Success Factors proposed for 2017/18 in Appendix 2, there was no performance measure to reduce carbon emissions since this was central to the delivery of the Council’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan. In reply, the Performance and Admin Manager undertook to add the delivery of this strategy to the proposed Critical Success Factors.
RESOLVED that the Cabinet:
(i) note the contents of the report
(ii) subject to the above amendment, approve the Council’s Critical Success Factors for 2017/18
· To provide information relating to Council performance for a rolling 12 month period to the end of the fourth quarter/year end of 2016/17, including monitoring of Performance Indicators, Critical Success Factors and the Council’s Significant Partnerships.
· To seek approval for the Council’s Critical Success Factors for 2017/18.
· To ensure that the Council’s Corporate Service and Business planning processes are effective.
· In accordance with Government guidelines, details on the performance of the Council and its services must be made available through as many mechanisms as possible.
