Croydon Cabinet to adopt measures to monitor performance

In a paper ‘Ambitious for Croydon – Key Outcomes and Performance Measures’ the Croydon Council Cabinet meeting on 19 January will be considering adopting some key tools to monitor the Council’s performance against the following key outcomes:

  • To create a place where people and businesses want to be
  • To help families be resilient and able to maximise their life chances and independence
  • To create a place that communities are proud of and want to look after as their neighbourhood
  • To be innovative and enterprising in using available resources to change lives for the better
  • To enable more local people to access a wider range of jobs
  • To help people from all communities live longer, healthier lives through positive lifestyle choices
  • To make parks and open spaces a cultural resource
  • To drive fairness for all communities, people and places
  • To grow a thriving and lively cultural offer which engages communities and supports regeneration
  • To protect children and vulnerable adults from harm and exploitation
  • To create a place where people feel safe and are safe
  • To be digital by design in meeting the needs of local people
  • To enable people of all ages to reach their potential through access to quality schools and learning
  • To help families and individuals be more financially resilient and live affordable lives
  • To build a place that is easy and safe for all to get to and move around in
  • To be open and transparent and put communities at the heart of decision making
  • To provide a decent, safe and affordable home for every local resident who needs one
  • To prevent domestic and sexual violence where possible, support victims and hold perpetrators to account
  • To improve wellbeing across all communities through sport and physical activity
  • To have the right people with the right skills in the right jobs

The key principles underlining the proposed ‘robust and comprehensive performance framework’ are as follows:

  • Openness, transparency and accountability.
  • A focus on real outcomes for local people.
  • A focus on fairness.

Note: One of the main outcomes that is not explicit relates to addressing racism and hostility between different sections of the community.
