Self-Assessment Report 2022/23

The Council’s latest annual self-assessment report looks back at our performance during 2022/23. This was a period of transition for the authority; following the appointment of a new administration, a new Community and Corporate Plan was developed and subsequently approved in April 2023, at the end of the assessment period. Given this, the assessment focuses on how well the council has met the areas for development identified in the 2021/22 self-assessment report. These are set under each of the six Well-being Objectives identified in the Community and Corporate Plan. This report also includes an evaluation of the Council’s use of resources, placing emphasis on sustainable development.

Performance Measures:

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
