As detailed in the recommendation.


The Chief Officer (Organisational Change) introduced the Improvement Plan 2015/16 which was being considered at County Council that afternoon for adoption.


The Improvement Plan was a statutory requirement of the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009 and was about sustaining performance in the current challenging climate, demonstrating a clear performance framework whilst meeting criteria from regulators such as the Wales Audit Office (WAO).  This was better integrated with financial planning, linked to other corporate plans such as the Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS), Council Governance Framework and the Corporate Resources Plan.


The Policy and Performance Manager explained that the Improvement Plan was presented and 2 documents that were inter-related.  Firstly the ‘public’ version of the statements of intent around the 8 priorities which were detailed in appendix 1 and secondly the document that described the targets and milestones on which achievement would be measured which was the document used by Cabinet and Overview and Scrutiny to monitor progress during the year.


Members welcomed the Improvement Plan including it being a web-based document which would be published on the Council’s website.


Following a question from the Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance, the Policy and Performance Manager explained that once the Improvement Plan had been considered at County Council it would be published on the Infonet and would be on the agendas for team meetings.




That the Improvement Plan 2015/16 be approved for adoption by County Council.
