Improvement at Ceredigion County Council
12:01pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
THE Annual Performance Plan presented to Ceredigion County Council last week showed ‘substantial improvement’ within the authority.
The plan provides a balanced view of council performance and compares it with other Welsh local authorities.
In 2012-13, the council improved against 52% of the measures used to assess and compare performances in local government.
The plan shows how the council has been able to make progress on all six Improvement Objectives, despite financial challenges.
Councillor Ellen Ap Gwynn, Leader of Ceredigion County Council, said the report shows substantial improvement.
“We’ve made savings in the last year of £3.57million and we’ve made progress in several services, this reflects the way in which the council is changing to become more efficient and effective without losing sight of the needs of the citizens of Ceredigion. I was particularly pleased to receive confirmation by the Welsh Government Officials that we successfully secured 100% of the Outcomes Agreements Grant.”
Every council in Wales is obliged to publish an annual report of its previous year’s performance, and the Improvement Objectives for the current year.
