Our Annual Report looks back at how we performed in 2015/16 and forward to some of the things we've got in store for 2016/17. Inside you can read how our investments, projects and work with partners are making a real difference to our residents and local businesses.
Annual report 2015-2016 online version
We report on our performance four times a year through our Signals of Success reports. These reports summarise our progress against the annual promises in our corporate strategy, our key success measures and the actions in our Strong Council and Grow, Save, Charge action plans. The reports also highlight other achievements and challenges. We also use service based measures to help us manage the effectiveness and efficiency of our services.
We are always looking at ways to improve services for residents and reduce our costs. In the current financial climate, peer reviews are a cost effective way for councils to get an independent view on how they're doing and to help one another improve. These focus on either a specific service or the organisation as a whole.
In November 2013, we had a LGA Peer Challenge, which found "There is no question that Wychavon has been a successful district council for many years, consistently driving ambition and creating a well respected and ‘happy' organisation. Staff and members are highly motivated and the strong ‘can do' culture is evident to partners, local businesses and residents." As well as reassuring us we are on the right track, the challenge identified a number of issues where we can improve, such as performance management training for managers and more flexible working.
