Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Information Only

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Decision that the Council’s performance for Quarter 2 of 2015/16 (July to September 2015) be noted as summarised below.


Reasons for the Decision


Quarterly monitoring of performance indicators formed part of the Council’s Performance Management Strategy. 


The figures for Quarter 2 showed that 29 (59.18%) of indicators were green (meeting or exceeding the target); 13 (26.53%) were red (not meeting the target); and 7 (14.29%) were amber (just missing the target) compared to the previous Quarter’s results at 53.1%, 34.7% and 12.2% respectively. 


Alternative Options Considered and Rejected




Key Points Arising from the Discussion


·       P&CE4 (total number of people accessing the Borough’s museums) – the Leisure, Culture and Health Portfolio Holder pointed out that, during the same period last year, due to interesting exhibitions, there had been a high attendance at Elstree and Borehamwood and Bushey museums which in turn led to a more challenging target being set.  The Chairman concurred that last year had been exceptional with 96 Shenley Road newly open and the exhibition for the 100th anniversary of the first world war also taking place at that time.


·       HOU13 (number of approaches for homelessness advice) – the Housing and Economic Development Portfolio Holder was pleased to report that, out of 334 homelessness approaches made to the Council, 297 had been prevented from becoming homeless.  He said that this was a very high percentage of the total and he wished to congratulate Officers on their achievement.


·       PLA204 (percentage of planning appeals allowed) – whilst this was a red indicator, the Planning and Localism Portfolio Holder believed this was a retrospective figure and that the current situation was healthy.  He noted that, with this one exception in appeals, all the planning key areas were green which was a very positive picture.


·       The Environment and Transport Portfolio Holder was pleased to report a good position in waste services.  She thanked members of the public for their recycling efforts and stressed the need to continue them in light of the approaching Christmas period and the increasing problem with landfill.
