Corporate plan and performance

  • Council and democracy

The Council’s Corporate Plan for 2015-20 sets our vision and strategy for the next five years based on the core principles of fairness, responsibility and opportunity to make sure Barnet is a place:

  • of opportunity, where people can further their quality of life
  • where people are helped to help themselves, recognising that prevention is better than cure
  • where responsibility is shared, fairly
  • where services are delivered efficiently to get value for money for the taxpayer

The most up to date information on the Corporate Plan can be found in the 2018/19 Addendum to the Corporate Plan.

2016/17 Addendum to the Corporate Plan

Each year, the Council will publish an addendum to the Corporate Plan which sets out updated targets for the year ahead.  The 2016/17 update was agreed at Full Council on 4 April 2016.

In addition to the Corporate Plan, each Theme Committee has a Commissioning Plan that sets out the strategic priorities and performance measures for each Committee.  Similarly to the Corporate Plan, each year, the Council will publish an addendum for each Commissioning Plan which sets out updated targets for the year ahead.  The 2016/17 updates were agreed by Theme Committees during March 2016.

Each of the Council’s in-house Delivery Units has a Management Agreement that sets out the actions for delivering the relevant sections of the Commissioning Plans, along with key indicators to help monitor performance

Each quarter's performance data is also published on the Council's data portal open.barnet.gov.uk.
