FLINTSHIRE continues to be a 'strong performing' council, a senior member has said.

Cabinet Members will be asked to consider a report which covers performance and achievements against the measures, milestones and risks set out in the Council Plan for 2018/19 when they meet on Tuesday, September 24.

The Council Plan 2017/23 was adopted by the Council in September 2017. Flintshire County Council has performed well during the last financial year and proves once again that it is a high performing Council.

Around 92 per cent of activities were assessed as on track and 89 per cent having achieved the desired outcome. Performance indicators show 70 per cent meeting or near to period target.

Risks are also being managed with the large majority being assessed as moderate (64 per cent), minor (14 per cent) or insignificant (11 per cent), with 11 per cent a concern.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Ian Roberts, said: "Through the Council Plan, we prioritise areas and services that are important to our community.

"It is monitored throughout the year to assess whether we are going to hit our targets. Despite many years of financial challenge, Flintshire continues to be a strong performing Council."

Some achievements include the continuation of building new council and affordable homes with 153 built by the end of March 2019.

Other achievements include the 21st Century Schools programme and proactive work which has seen almost 95 per cent of private landlords register with Rent Smart Wales.

Despite 'challenging resources' the council set a 'balanced' budget for 2019/20.

Flintshire County Council’s Chief Executive, Colin Everett, said: "Flintshire has been creative and successful in achieving its aims for another year.

"Some projects are finished, some are on-going and will move into next year as Flintshire continues to reach and surpass its targets despite the continuing economic challenges."
