Minutes:

9.1       The Committee considered the report of the Executive Lead Strategy Governance & Law which reported the draft Corporate Key Performance Indicator (KPI) and associated targets with rationales for the reporting year 2109/20. The report was introduced by the Head of Performance Improvement and Programmes.

 

9.2      The Chair noted that there was an amendment from the Conservative Group and asked Councillor Wares to introduce it.

 

9.3       Councillor Wares said that the collective decision for the city to be carbon neutral by 2030 was a key primary objective and, whilst there were a number of KPIs relating to this area, it would be useful to have a Corporate KPI see how we were performing. Councillor Wares proposed the following amendment (changes in bold).

 

2.1 That Policy, Resources and Growth Committee approve the    Corporate KPI set and associated targets as set out in Appendices 2 (council indicators) and 3 (city indicators);

 

          2.2 To note that target figures may change during the year if new benchmarking figures become available. PR&G approval will be sought at a future date if there is a proposal to change the set itself or the rationale for a particular target;

 

          2.3 That Policy, Resource & Growth Committee agree in principle to include an additional Corporate KPI to measure performance of the council in respect to sustainability and carbon reduction to meet the objective of the City being carbon neutral by 2030.

 

          2.4 That the details of the KPI be developed by the Cross-Party Working Group for agreement by Policy Resources & Growth Committee.

 

2.5 That future Corporate and City KPI reports are also reported to the relevant sub-committees with the frequency as outlined in paragraph 3.8.

 

9.4    Councillor Mears seconded the amendment.

 

9.5  The Monitoring Officer referred to the amendment 2.5, and suggested that it read ‘committee’ rather than ‘sub-committee’. Councillor Wares agreed to that change.

 

9.6       Councillor Yates said he agreed with the sentiment of the amendment but for 2.3 suggested an amendment to the wording to read ‘to measure the performance of the city’ rather than‘to measure the performance of the council’.  He formally proposed that 2.3 be amended to read:

           

            2.3 That Policy, Resource & Growth Committee agree in principle to include an additional Corporate KPI to measure performance of the council city in respect to sustainability and carbon reduction to meet the objective of the City being carbon neutral by 2030.

 

9.7       Councillor Childs seconded that amendment.

 

9.8       Councillor Hugh-Jones reassured colleagues that the KPI Cross Party Working Group were already looking at this area.

 

9.9 The Committee considered the amendment proposed by Councillor Yates and it was agreed.

 

9.10    The Committee considered the amendment proposed by Councillor Wares (as amended) and it was agreed.

 

9.11    RESOLVED: That the Committee –

 

(i)            Approved the Corporate KPI set and associated targets as set out in Appendices 2 (council indicators) and 3 (city indicators);

 

(ii)          Noted that target figures may change during the year if new benchmarking figures become available. PR&G approval will be sought at a future date if there is a proposal to change the set itself or the rationale for a particular target;

 

(iii)         Agreed in principle to include an additional Corporate KPI to measure performance of the City in respect to sustainability and carbon reduction to meet the objective of the City being carbon neutral by 2030;

 

(iv)         Agreed that the details of the KPI be developed by the Cross-Party Working Group for agreement by Policy Resources & Growth Committee;

 

(v)          Agreed that future Corporate and City KPI reports are also reported to the relevant committees with the frequency as outlined in paragraph 3.8 of the report.
