• 26 apprentices across 14 disciplines were appointed and commenced work in September 2022;
• £330,024 DHP allocation and additional Government funding spent supporting households with additional payments to assist with rent due to impact of the cost-of-living rising costs.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Ian Roberts, said:
“The 2022/23 Annual Performance Report is testament to the hard work and dedication of our workforce.
As services move to business as usual following the global pandemic, we continue to make good progress against our Council Priorities and services continue to serve our local communities well.
I am pleased that throughout a challenging financial year and a period of recovery from the Covid pandemic we have performed well.
Our performance against the Council Plan measures is positive overall with 62% of the performance indicators meeting or exceeding target for the year. The report presents a comprehensive assessment of our performance against the Council Priorities”.
