  • Performance Improvement Plan 2021-22 Consultation

    Status: closed Closing Date: Friday 21 May 2021

    The Local Government Act (Northern Ireland) 2014 requires councils to set one or more improvement objectives annually.  Our Performance Improvement Plan sets out a number of Improvement Objectives for the upcoming financial year.  It explains what we hope to achieve, how we plan to do it and how our citizens will be better off as a result.  The Performance Improvement Plan also includes statutory indicators as set out by the Department for Communities.

    For 2021/22 Council is proposing six Improvement Objectives and we would like to hear your views on them.

    Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to complete the survey on our draft Performance Improvement Plan for 2021/22.  We really appreciate the views of our MEA stakeholders.
