Annual progress update Corporate KPIs 2018/19

Report of the Executive Lead Strategy Governance & Law (copy attached)

Decision:

RESOLVED:

 

That the Committee noted the progress made in relation to Corporate KPIs, particularly the corrective measures outlined for ‘red’ and ‘amber’ indicators, and further noted its role in providing support and challenge to lead officers to bring performance back on track.

Minutes:

8.1       The Committee considered the report of the Executive Lead Strategy Governance & Law which reported on the Corporate Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the period 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2018. The report was introduced by the Head of Performance Improvement and Programmes.

 

8.2       Councillor Hugh-Jones was pleased that there had been an improvement in the percentage of household waste sent for re-use, recycling and composting and asked if that was a result of the introduction of a garden waste composting service, and understood that there was a long waiting list for the green waste bins. The Executive Director Economy Environment & Culture said that there had been good demand for the green waste bins, and work was being undertaken to improve the IT systems before the waiting list for those bins was re-opened.

 

8.3       Councillor Shanks was pleased to note the reduction of the number of children in care. However, she was concerned that the conception rate for under 18s had gone up which was against the national trend and asked if there was any reason for it. The Executive Director Families Children & Learning said that the targets were set by Public Health and it wasn’t an area he was particularly familiar with, but there was a two-year time lag on the data, and although it had increased it had not gone up significantly. He said that he would provide a written answer for Councillor Shanks.

 

8.4       Councillor Clare noted that residents who did not feel that they would have enough money to meet basic living costs in the coming 12 months were the least likely to say that they were well informed on services and benefits provided and noted the action points suggested in the report, and asked for confirmation that those people would be targeted. The Chief Executive said that the City Tracker results were from a random sample so weren’t from a particular target group and were anonymous and so we were using the data as a proxy indicator of where some of the challenges may be. When taking action the Council would be working with partners who would have more information on the needs of the different target groups and so through that process we should be sure that the right people were being helped.

 

8.5       Councillor Mears thanked officers for the report which provided a good overview of the city which was very useful for Members. She referred to the economy of the city and the need for it to be robust and to the action points which referred to a ‘circular and sustainable’ economy’ and asked for clarification on what that meant. Officers said that Item 13 on the agenda, which would be discussed later in the meeting, would be looking at that in more detail.

 

8.6       Councillor Mac Cafferty referred to the level of Nitrogen Dioxide in North Street and noted that the bus companies were looking at ways to mitigate the levels and asked if this could continue to be looked at. The Assistant Director City Transport said that they were working with the bus company to reduce the congestion. The air quality was improving, but the Local Transport Plan 5 will be looking at measure that could be taken to reduce it further.

 

8.7       RESOLVED:

 

That the Committee noted the progress made in relation to Corporate KPIs, particularly the corrective measures outlined for ‘red’ and ‘amber’ indicators, and further noted its role in providing support and challenge to lead officers to bring performance back on track.
