154 Performance Management and Risk Outturn Report: Q2 2017/18

Report by Dr Carlton Brand, Corporate Director

Supporting documents:


Councillor Philip Whitehead presented the report which provided an update on performance against the stated aims in the council’s new Business Plan 2017-27. The information provided included key measures as well as the council’s strategic risk register.


Matters raised in the course of the presentation and discussion included: that that key performance indicators had been reviewed to ensure they were more meaningful; that areas where performance needed improvement was included; how some performance had levelled off, including number of apprenticeships, but how this had reflected national performance; that police performance could be scrutinised through the Police & Crime Panel; that work was continuing to address issues such as getting care leavers into appropriate accommodation; and how area boards can help to improve performance in areas protecting the vulnerable.




To note the updates and outturns:


1.    Against the measures and activities ascribed against the council’s priorities; and


2.    To the strategic risk register.


Reasons for Decision:


The current interim performance framework compiles measures used to monitor progress against the council’s previous business plan in relation to the goals laid out in Wiltshire Council’s current Business Plan 2017-27. A new framework is being compiled to capture all the activity designed to deliver the new business plan.


The strategic risk register captures and monitors significant risks facing the council: in relation to significant in-service risks facing individual areas, in managing its business across the authority generally and in assuring our preparedness should a national risk event occur.
