Policy and performance

Performance management

To support continuous improvement councils are required to put in place effective performance management systems. Our performance management system means that we can measure performance and our progress in achieving improvements in services. The performance management system consists of a number of high-level strategic objectives, key aims for what we want to achieve and a number of targets against which we measure our progress in achieving our aims.

Performance reports identify progress to date, and enable us to focus on areas where performance is below target.

For more information on performance management, please contact the performance team.


The Corporate Plan is the document which brings all of the strategic objectives, key aims and measures together and sets the broader policy direction for the council. It sets out our aims and priorities for the next three years and outlines how we intend to deliver our vision for the district. The detailed actions which each team and individuals will take to implement the Corporate Plan are included within teams' annual service plans.
