Corporate Plan 2017 -2022 including Well-being Objectives and Statement

The Monmouthshire County Council Corporate Plan ‘A Monmouthshire that works for everyone’ sets a clear direction for the Council up to 2022.  The Corporate Plan re-states the council’s purpose of building sustainable and resilient communities and has used a range of evidence to set out the direction the Council will take to deliver services now and plan for the long term future of Monmouthshire.

The plan sets five priority goals and includes a number of programmes of work, twenty-two in total, which the Council is committed to between now and 2022. The five goals are:

  • best possible start in life;
  • thriving and connected communities;
  • natural and built environment;
  • lifelong well-being;
  • future-focused council

This plan meets our responsibility to produce a Well-being Statement and Objectives and set Improvement Objectives under the Well-being of Future Generations Act  and Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009 legislation respectively. We will  produce an annual report evaluating the progress we have made on the Corporate Plan

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 www.wao.gov.uk
