Efficient and Effective Council - Evidence Base

This outcome focuses on the process of how the Council as an organisation delivers services to its residents and businesses. It is very much about how we do things and ensuring that we do the right things in the right way given the resources available and the changing nature of financial support to local government.

The priorities for this outcome will therefore focus on:-

  • Ensuring that the Council is fit for the future with an agile and flexible workforce
  • Medium term financial planning to ensure effective use of available resources including asset management
  • Streamlined decision making to reduce bureaucracy whilst retaining openness and creativity. 

The below spreadsheet summarises the evidence under-pinning these priorities under this outcome. It brings together the actions included in the various strategies owned by or shared in partnership with the council and demonstrates the broad range of responsibilities undertaken by the council.
