Additional documents:


Councillor Andy Jenns (Portfolio Holder for Customer and Transformation) explained that the report provided an update on the Council’s performance set against the targets contained in the Corporate Plan.  He noted that there were 54 Key Business Measures (KBMs) in the framework and overall, the Council continued to maintain its robust performance across the board in the face of increased and changing demand due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant changes in how services were delivered.  Councillor Jenns advised that the Quarter 3 overall performance against the Quarter 2 position had declined slightly and highlighted the notable measures achieving targeting and those not achieving target as detailed in the report.  He concluded by advising that the Council was developing a new performance management framework alongside the Council Plan refresh, which aimed to provide a sharpened focus on performance and would better support delivery of?the Organisation’s new priorities as outlined in the refreshed Council Plan.


Councillor Jerry Roodhouse noted that there were a number of KBMs that had been static for some time and he watched with interest to see how these developed.  In relation to children in care, he referenced the work of the Corporate Parenting Board which had noted an improvement in the direction of travel against this measure.  The Board had focussed on missing episodes and would be holding a special meeting to dive deeper into this topic.   Councillors Jeff Morgan (Portfolio Holder for Children, Families & Education) and Isobel Seccombe (Leader) welcomed work on this issue by the Corporate Parenting Panel.



That Cabinet notes progress on the delivery of the Council Plan 2020 - 2025 for the period as contained in the report.
