2019/20 Service Plans

Our service plans form an important part of the management and monitoring of Council services. They contain details of the services we will deliver, linked to the aims and objectives of the Corporate Plan.

Our service plans for 2019/20 were agreed by Council on 7th March 2019 and contain our performance during 2018/19 and our targets for 2019/20.

The Plan includes our ‘Corporate Plan Indicators’ and ‘Key Performance Indicators’ which will be monitored quarterly, as well as service indicators which will be reported at the end of each financial year. The service plans also include information on staff resources and budgets to clarify the link between service levels and resources.


Performance Management Handbook

This handbook sets out what performance management is and why it is so important to achieving and demonstrating improvement.  It explains what the District Council and its staff do to plan activity and to monitor, report and improve performance in order to deliver its priorities.  Please see the latest version below - published in November 2019

Performance of the District Council's Priorities

The District Council manages its services throughout the year using ‘Corporate Plan Indicators’ and ‘Key Performance Indicators’ and a traffic light system. From April 2016 these will be reported twice a year to Council.
