Your Council Performance Information

We want to ensure that our employees are supported to deliver excellent customer service and that we carry out our work in the most efficient way possible.

To deliver excellent council services such as teaching, support for older people and help for those looking for employment we need to have enough staff, with the right skills.

As a local council serving our local people we need to ensure we are making best use of our money. One of the ways we do this is by thinking of new ways we can deliver our services, like using technology to provide a wider range of services (e.g. paying for services online).

The table below shows a summary of how we're performing in this area.
