Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Resources submitted a report updating members on the proposals for developing a new Corporate Strategy for 2023-2027 and the reporting of related key performance indicators (KPIs).


Members were reminded that the Corporate Strategy sets out the strategic direction of the Council for any given period, providing a focus to ensure that the services the Council deliver meet the needs of the communities. The 2019-2023 Strategy had a four-year scope but was reviewed annually to ensure that it continued to reflect the changes to priorities that occur over time.


The report noted that following the local elections taking place in May 2023 the Council will develop a new Strategy, which will have a four-year life span, covering 2023-2027.




1.   Agreed to develop a new Corporate Strategy for 2023-2027 after the local elections, taking into account:

a.   Findings from the 2023 Peoples’ Survey, and

b.   2021/22 year-end performance data.

2.    Agreed to the performance reporting as set out in the report.
