Councillor John Brady, Cabinet member for Finance, Performance and Risk, introduced the report which provided a summary of progress against Wiltshire Council’s Business Plan for the third quarter of 2012/13.


It was noted that the plan was currently in its second year out of four, and that though external factors such as recent severe weather and the economic downturn might impact on achievement of targets in any one year, the overall four year targets were still expected to be achievable.


At the end of the third quarter, 20 of the remaining 31 indicators were on target, another five were within 5 per cent, and three have no targets set.  Only three indicators were not on target, with none being a priority target.
