This report provided details of how the Council had performed during quarter 3 in 2019/20 against the Council’s three priorities and the actions being taken to improve performance. There were 44 Council Plan measures for 2019/20, of which it was currently possible to report on 39 as one was data only and four were not available for the reporting quarter.


In summary, 25 out of 39 measures had met or exceeded target, six were slightly below target and eight were significantly below target.


The report also presented the quarter 3 2019/20 review of the Strategic Risk Register. Proposed amendments to the Risk Register were set out in paragraphs 2.2-2.4 of the report and the revised Risk Register was attached at Appendix 5 to the report.

Decision number:


The Cabinet noted the Q3 2019/20 performance against the measures used to monitor progress against the Council’s priorities.


The Cabinet agreed the amended Strategic Risk Register as set out in Appendix 5 to the report including:


The deletion of risks SR25: Non-delivery of Transformation in Adult Social Care, SR33: Impact of Welfare Reform and SR34: successful delivery of the corporate transformation programme from the strategic risk register on the basis that they have met their residual target risk scores as explained in paragraph 2.3 of the report.


The addition of new risk SR39: Lack of resources to keep young people with SEND safe due to increasing demand and complexity of need pressures to the strategic risk register as detailed in paragraph 2.4 of the report.




Regular monitoring of performance and risks by management and Members is best practice and ensures achievement of corporate objectives.
