The removal of the national/externally set improvement and performance framework now provides a much greater opportunity for self determination, with local decisions around the Council’s own definition of improvement, what lies at the heart of improvement, how improvement is measured and how to develop the culture of improvement. The Council's key document is its Council Plan which outlines our core priorities for our communities over a four-year period. 

The Council has also adapted it's Performance Management Framework in light of these changes. Measuring and reporting performance is a key element in the performance management system.  The key documents mentioned above contains a number of outcome measures, key projects, actions and deliverables.  In order for these plans to be delivered, the outcome measures,  projects, actions and deliverables need to be monitored and improvement actions need to be identified where performance is below standard. The Council will publish performance reports on the progress of the Council Plan on a quarterly basis.
