Council performance

Performance management is at the heart of good management. For West Lindsey District Council, it helps to ensure that we are achieving what we set out to do, giving value for money and making life better for our citizens.

To support performance management, the council must be able to measure its performance. Successful organisations measure their performance in order to know how well they are performing and identify and take action to improve.

We manage ourself by our performance against a set of key indicators, and by monitoring the progress made against the Corporate Plan.

Quarterly Performance Report

Every three months we publish information about how our services are performing on an exception basis. The report contains a number of key performance indicators, organised by portfolio. Against each of the indicators we provide:

  • performance against target
  • a red, amber or green status which shows whether performance is below target, within tolerance or exceeding target
  • a direction of travel to show whether there are improvements, no change or a fall in performance over time

All reports relating to performance are submitted to the Corporate Policy and Resources Committee and Prosperous Communities Committee. To view the archive to these committees please visit our Committees, Agendas and Minutes pages.
