7. Corporate performance

Ensuring we deliver the right things at the right time for the local community.

Why we report

We have an effective and transparent Corporate Performance Management Framework, enabling local residents proper scrutiny of progress towards our key policy objectives and accountability in how successfully we're administering our resources.

Elected Cabinet Members are ultimately accountable for the performance of the council with each having responsibility for one broad area of our work; a 'portfolio'. In delivering their portfolio of work, Cabinet Members regularly meet with council officers to discuss the ongoing performance of council services.

How we report

In order to effectively scrutinise our performance, alongside a collective Cabinet report, each of the Cabinet Committees receive a quarterly performance report. This sets out the latest position against the Corporate Plan's key policy commitments, and associated performance indicators, that fall within the committee’s portfolio.

In addition to the Cabinet Committee reports, performance information is published to our Your Borough publications, complemented by supporting articles demonstrating the impact of our efforts in the community and how we are working towards our ambition of Delivering a Gravesham to be proud of. A summary of corporate performance from the latest edition of Your Borough.

Finally, alongside the quarterly performance monitoring reports we also produce an Annual Report to complete our performance reporting process. To view the latest report please view our Annual Performance Report page.

Full details of the roles, responsibilities and monitoring regime involved in the management of our performance are set out in our adopted Corporate Performance Management Framework.

For more information on our key policy objectives and commitments please view our Corporate Plan page.
