The Policy, Performance and Personnel Manager presented the Corporate Performance Monitoring Q3 2017/2018 report and advised that the report showed that 51% of targets had been met, and performance had improved against target for 17 targets.


Members were reminded that following the collation of the full report, those indicators that had not met their target were drawn out into an Action Report, which provided additional detail on what actions were being taken to correct performance that had a variance to target.


The Panel was informed that Appendix A set out the Environment and Community Panel and Regeneration and Development Panel indicators.


Members’ attention was drawn to the key points from the corporate performance monitoring report Q3 set out in section 2 of the report.


The Policy, Performance and Personnel Manager reminded the Panel that following a scrutiny review, it was agreed that “Panels should consider their own performance indicators and they be encouraged to monitor the progress in line with the Corporate Objectives through that route.”  Attached at Appendix A were the indicators which related to the remits of Environmental and Community Panel and Regeneration and Development Panel.  To support corporate oversight, the full set of indicators would continue to be presented to the Corporate Performance Panel.
