Additional documents:


Councillor Achilleas Georgiou (Deputy Leader) introduced the report of the Chief Executive (No.118) providing the latest quarterly report on the Corporate Performance Scorecard.




1.               That a revised version of the report had been circulated for Members’ consideration.


2.               For information only, the progress being made towards achieving the identified key priorities for Enfield.


3.               That 70 performance indicators were being reported, of which 68 had targets. Of these 37 (54.40%) were at green; 23 (33.80%) were at amber; and, 8 (11.8%) were at red. Members compared these to the 2016/17 figures as detailed in the report. Overall the performance indicators were moving in the right direction. Members’ attention was drawn to a number of the specific indicators as set out below:


·       Housing and Homelessness: the number of households living in temporary accommodation had showed an increase of 194. The positive work in bringing empty homes back into use in private sector housing was highlighted.

·       Adult Social Care: There had been a slight improvement in the number of clients reviewed in the year (of clients receiving any long term service)

·       Safeguarding Children: the positive indicator with regard to the number of children looked after per 10,000 population aged under 18 years.

·       Libraries: the number of visits being made to libraries was noted; and the need to investigate the reasons for a reduction in visits at particular libraries, as set out in the report.

·       Sport and Leisure: whilst there had been a reduction in the number of young people attending sports development sessions this had been balanced against an increase in the number of visits to the Borough’s leisure centres.

·       Income Collection, Debt Recovery and Benefit Processing: noted the positive indicator regarding the processing of new housing benefit claims.

·       Other Corporate Indicators: A number of additional interventions had been put in place to manage sickness absence.


Alternative Options Considered: Not to report regularly on the Council’s performance. This would make it difficult to assess progress made on achieving the Council’s main priorities and to demonstrate the value for money being provided by Council services.


Reason: To update Cabinet on the progress made against all key priority performance indicators for the Council.
