Under the Local Government Act (NI) 2014, councils must put arrangements in place to secure continuous improvement when carrying out their functions.
This means that each financial year we are required to set objectives for improving how we carry out our functions and to put in place arrangements to achieve these objectives.
The draft performance improvement objectives for 2017-2018 have been developed to align with the draft Programme for Government, draft Borough Community Plan, and our corporate priorities as set out in our Corporate Plan (2015-2017): Prosper the Place; Serve the People; Strengthen our Position.
They have also been influenced by other regional and local strategies and areas identified by council departments which are a focus for improvement over the period 2017-2018.
Consultation on the draft objectives is a necessary part of the development of our annual Performance Improvement Plan for the year ahead.
We want to make sure that our performance improvement objectives are being developed in consultation with
- Elected Members;
- Local businesses;
- Statutory community planning partners and other statutory partners;
- Other bodies and other stakeholders with which collaborative working is taking place or is being planned
