The Council Plan is a high-level strategic document setting out our ambitions and aspirations for the district from 2021-2026.
The plan sets out objectives over five years and will be reviewed at the end of the period, or sooner should external circumstances dictate.
The Council Plan is supported by a five year Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS).
We have a clear vision for the area, which is making North Hertfs a district in which everyone who lives, works or visits is able to flourish. We will work with our partners, businesses, and urban and rural communities to achieve this vision.
We have five objectives for 2021-2026, which are:
- Be a welcoming, inclusive, and efficient council
- Build thriving and resilient communities
- Respond to challenges to the environment
- Enable an enterprising and co-operative economy
- Support the delivery of good quality and affordable homes
The Council Plan 2021-2026 document explains what each objective means and details specific projects that will help deliver each one. The Overview and Scrutiny Committee will review the progress of these projects midway through and after the end of each financial year.
Performance management helps to ensure that the we are achieving what we set out to do and are giving value for money. We measure our performance to analyse how well we are doing and to identify opportunities for improvement.
Effective performance management requires performance information that is robust and accurate. Regular updates on how the council is performing are provided to senior managers and to councillors every three months.
