Self-Assessment Report 2021/22
In our Corporate Plan, we set out Monmouthshire County Council’s direction for the years 2017-22. Within this plan, five goals were identified, our well-being objectives, along with an ambitious plan to achieve them. However, during this time, unprecedented challenges were faced, placing immense pressure on the Council and its ability to deliver and achieve its goals. This first self-assessment report reflects on those five years, with a particular focus on 2021-22, identifying how successful the Council was in implementing its goals, evidence to show this and where we can improve moving forward. This report also includes an evaluation of the Council’s use of resources, placing emphasis on sustainable development, as well as an analysis of the Council’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A community and corporate plan is published every five years. This sets out the ambitions and actions of the Council over the five following years. This plan is consistently reviewed to ensure that those actions set out are still relevant in the current climate. The latest publication:

Previous reviews of performance:
The council is responsible for a range of services. We monitor how well we are performing throughout the year as we strive to maintain standards and, where resources allow, deliver improvement. Our select committees scrutinise performance of a range of services throughout the year and our plans contain a large number of measures we use to monitor performance.
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
