Cabinet Decision: 4th December 2014
Title of Item/Report
Qtr 2 Performance Report
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report that provided details of the Council's performance in the first six months of 2014/15, highlighting key achievements, areas for improvement and proposed actions. It also included information relating to Freedom of Information requests and complaints and commendations. Whilst it aimed to give a perspective on the overall performance of the Council, its primary focus was on the achievement of the basket of measures and associated targets agreed as part of the Council Plan 2014-17.

There were a wide range of achievements and activities delivered in support of the key Council Plan themes that were not captured within the agreed basket of key indicators. These were reported throughout the year in various reports to Cabinet, captured through press releases, Stockton News articles and various accolades awarded to the Council throughout the year. Further details were included in thematic summary reports that were attached to the report for information.

Members discussed the large number of Freedom of Information requests that had been received and felt that a scrutiny task and finish group should consider the issue.

A briefing paper on Funded Early Learning for 2 year olds was tabled for Members information.
