Bury Corporate Plan Performance and Delivery Report Quarter Three 2022-23

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Councillor Tahir Rafiq, Cabinet Member for Corporate Affairs and HR, presented the report which provided a summary of key delivery and performance that occurred during Quarter Three (October – December) 2022-23, aligned to the 3R priorities. In response to Members’ questions, it was noted that staff absences had been discussed in detail at recent sub-committee meetings, the papers of which could be shared to Councillors upon request, but related to lasting effects of Covid-19 and were in line with national levels. Members also queried bin collection and recycling rates and it was noted that this was cyclical based on seasonal changes (i.e. less garden waste in the winter). It was agreed that, for data like this, average rates be shared in future reports. 




1.    Noted the performance and delivery against the 3R priorities and the 2022-23 Corporate Plan delivery objectives; and

2.    Noted the ongoing developments to strengthen and improve this reporting process and functionality.


Reasons for the decision:

This report continues our commitment to “strengthening the basics” by embedding the corporate business planning process across all the work of the Council and NHS Bury Integrated Care Partnership (ICP). This will allow for more effective performance management at organisation, departmental and officer level.
