Part 12 of the Local Government Act (NI) 2014 sets out a General Duty of Improvement in that, “a Council must make arrangements to secure continuous improvement in the exercise of its functions”. A Council will be required to have regard in particular to improvement in the exercise of its function in terms of: strategic effectiveness; service quality; service availability; fairness; sustainability; efficiency; and innovation. The legislation also sets out that for each financial year, a Council must set itself and work to achieve ‘improvement objectives’ relating to the areas outlined above.
Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council has been in existence since 1 April 2015, we are determined to build on the good progress made in 2016-17 and to work towards delivery of all of the commitments made in our Performance Improvement Plan 2017-18.
The Council Performance Improvement Plan for 2017/18 is available by clicking here and it details examples of the service advances we intend to make.
Our residents and stakeholders can be fully assured that the Members and officers of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council are fully committed to delivering on our improvement objectives.
