To receive a report from the Director of Operations providing Members with an update on performance against the Corporate Plan and local service targets for 2018/19 as well as providing an update on the key business risks.
The Group had before it, and NOTED, a report * from the Director of Operations providing members with an update on performance against the Corporate Plan and local service targets for 2018/19 as well as providing an update on the key business risks.
It was explained that this was the first report for the current municipal year.
Consideration was given to:
· Whether the target in relation to ‘the average number of days to re-let’ was unrealistic at 14 days and whether this should be set at a higher number. It was explained that this was a challenging target but challenges had driven the business forward and if 14 days was not achievable the target could be reviewed in future.
· The review of the Homelessness Strategy in ‘early’ 2018. The question was asked as to whether this work had been completed yet since we were now half way through the year. The Group Manager for Housing explained that new legislation in this area had been introduced in April 2018 and that this had resulted in a large volume of work to enable to Council to be in a position to manage its duties. A review was on the ‘to do list’ and would be forthcoming as soon as possible.
