Flintshire County Council’s performance during 2018-19 will be discussed at a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday 22 October before the publication of the Council’s Annual Performance Report.
The report reflects the overall good progress that has been made against priorities set out in the Council Plan 2018-19 and summarises the achievements of the organisation. Flintshire continues to be a well-run and high performing council. Our consistently good performance has been recognised locally and nationally.
Some of the successes are set out below:
- Continuation of building new council and affordable homes with 153 built by the end of March 2019.
