The Operational Plan is divided into seven Key Priority Areas and reflects the objectives of the 2013-2018 Corporate Plan and council’s long term vision for the region: Shaping the future by Valuing People, Partnerships and Place. Each Key Priority is assigned a specific outcome statement that describe what council intends to achieve, together with performance measures and planned time frames that will enable us to monitor our progress throughout the year.
Reporting over the four quarters of the financial year provides us with the opportunity to respond more effectively to significant changes in our operating environment, whether they are social, economic, environmental, workplace health and safety, public safety or internal changes that affect our organisation’s capacity to deliver on those actions.
The progress for each Performance Measure has been charted against a target line. The target line is based on an assumption that progress occurs on an equal basis across the whole of the reporting year. For this reason, a Performance Measure that is charted as being below the target line may still be awarded a green traffic light. This is particularly relevant where an Activity or Performance Measure is scheduled to occur during a later quarter of the operational plan.
All Performance Measures have a percentage recorded to indicate the actual progress to date and individual commentary has been provided by the relevant department to support the progress of the Activity.
Status Legend: Colour-coded traffic light is indicative of the progress of each action. Green for on-target or completed actions, Yellow for behind target, Red for not achieved and Blue actions will be carried over to the next financial year.
