We want to build sustainable and resilient communities that support the well-being of current and future generations. This vision is at the heart of everything we do to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Monmouthshire.

We are striving to deliver high quality services that meet the needs of local people and businesses, to help us achieve this we set objectives and targets, taking account of the things that matter to people.  We are also a member of the Public Services Board (PSB)  in Monmouthshire where we work with public sector partners to improve well-being in the county.

Well-being Objectives and Statement

Under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 we have a responsibility to:

  • Set and publish well-being objectives
  • Take all reasonable steps to meet those objectives
  • Publish a statement about well-being objectives
  • Detail arrangements to publish an annual report of progress

The well-being objectives we have set bring together the latest evidence from the well-being assessment, policy and legislation and show how we will strive to deliver a public service that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We are also required under the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009 to set annual Improvement Objectives and produce an Improvement Plan, the wellbeing objectives meet this duty.

Audit and Regulation

As well as monitoring our own performance, we are also reviewed every year by the Wales Audit Office. We use their assessments to help us focus on the things we need to improve across the council. They produce an annual improvement report, which reports on how well we are delivering our services, and how we have improved since the previous year.  Reports can be read at www.wao.gov.uk
