Our structure chart
Performance annual report
The report shows the figures for a set of indicators we use to check how we are performing. If we set a target for an indicator, it shows whether the result is:
- at or above target (green)
- less than 10% below target (amber)
- more than 10% below target (red)
The national indicator set finished at the end of 2010/11, so we use a new set of measures developed within our performance management framework. This helps us monitor our performance, hold the Council and our partners to account and check that we are meeting our strategic objectives.
Some of the indicators are the same as the old ones. Where this is the case, we have included the results from 2014/15 and 2015/16.
