Summary of Performance

Summary of Performance

The summary of performance table below shows the latest overall progress against our Corporate Plan. We recognise that a number of the indicators are long term and outside of the direct control of the Council, but we are measuring progress against them because of their importance to local residents.

Balanced Scorecard

The Balanced Scorecard is the Council's key means of performance management.

The purpose of the Balanced Scorecard presentation is to show the relationship between the intended outcomes of the Corporate Plan with the vital finance, workforce and process measures that will support their delivery.  The indicators have been specifically designed to reflect the needs of the Council rather than meet central government requirements, following consultation with a focus group of residents. The Balanced Scorecard is available at a Council level, providing the detail that sits behind the table above, together with the specific scorecards for the Council's main departments (what we call Directorates).
