Performance Monitoring Report Mid Year - 1 st April 2014 to 30 th September 2014 Milestones Indicators 4 6 27 2 46
Introduction The Council is committed to measuring its performance against challenging targets. To achieve this we have developed the Annual Plan containing a set of key priorities, annual plan milestones and local performance indicators at both corporate and local service level which help to drive continued performance improvement in identified areas. This half yearly report (April 2014 to September 2014) presents information in easy to view tables, with accompanying text provided where further explanation is needed or where it adds to the overall understanding of a particular set of figures.Summary Over the period from April-September 2014, the Council has continued to deliver its services to the local community in a professional and effective manner. It has successfully achieved this within budget whilst also implementing a challenging internal service review programme. Key Priorities Milestones Significant progress has been made on the following key priorities: The Camberley Town Centre Area Action Plan was adopted in July 2014; The Camberley Town Centre Management Strategy is now agreed and meetings have commenced; Town Centre car park improvements are substantially completed; The new Surrey Heath Business Awards were successful; The Council has become a dementia friendly organisation; The Council is successfully delivering the Surrey Supporting Families project for Surrey Heath and Runnymede; The Economic Development Strategy was approved by Executive; Engagement continues with neighbouring districts and boroughs on a joint waste contract; Approval to construct an artificial 3G pitch at Frimley Lodge Park. A “Make it Real” event was held in September 2014 attracting over 90 representatives from organisations providing services to older people The Wellbeing centre is substantially completed with a number of activities agreed by partners.

Performance Indicators Our performance indicators continue to illustrate improvements in service delivery with some of the highlights being: The number of residents receiving meals at home and “Tele-care” has increased by 21% compared to last year; The Property Team achieved a 40% increase in income over their target through effective asset management; Increased income has been generated from pitch booking, theatre lettings and hire and events in Frimley Lodge Park; The number of major planning applications determined exceeded target and was 100% in the second quarter; 84% of non-major planning applications were determined within target times against a target of 70%; 98% of customers felt that Contact Centre service was good or excellentConclusion This review of the first half of the 2014/15 year illustrates the continuously improving performance of the Council against corporate key priorities, annual milestones and performance indicators.
