The Council Plan Quarter 1 performance progress report for the period 1 April to 30 June 2021 was considered and approved by Cabinet on 9 September. Pete Sidgwick presented a tailored update relevant to the remit of the Committee. It was reported that comprehensive performance information was available via the Power BI system.
The report focused on the Council Plan 2020 – 2025, giving strategic context and a performance commentary, including the Council’s two high level outcomes. These were assessed against 54 key business measures (KBM), of which twelve were within the remit of this committee. Current performance showed that one KBM was paused from reporting due to national suspension of inspection or examination regimes. Eight KBMs were on track and three were not. There were two areas of note, with a current performance narrative provided for each of these. Of the three areas not on track, none required escalation at this stage. Summary information was provided and the associated commentary and improvement activity for all reporting measures was available. The impact of the Covid pandemic on these measures was noted.
A financial commentary was provided showing the position on the revenue budget, delivery of the savings plan and the capital programme.
A councillor commented on the worsening position in regard to suicides, which should remain a focus. Commissioners were aware of this and support was provided through a third-party organisation to affected individuals.
