In order to fulfil our ambition for Leeds to be the best city and Leeds City Council to be the best council in the UK it is essential that we effectively measure performance against our objectives. This allows us to prioritise areas that may need more attention and resources and also highlights where we’re improving and doing well.
Our strategic objectives are set out in the Best Council Plan. Progress on the Plan as a whole is reported on a regular basis through the ‘Best Council Plan Success Measures’: a set of key performance indicators that we track and report on regularly (available in the Documents section). We update the Success Measures scorecard each quarter and publish a yearly full report.
The Best Council Plan is supported by a range of other plans, each with their own detailed key performance indicators. Progress against these supporting plans is published throughout the year as part of Executive Board, Scrutiny Board and partnership board papers.
These performance reports form part of a wider set of available information about Leeds. More information, including historical performance information, is available through the Leeds Observatory (see the External links section) which is a web-based tool that is a focal point for information and data about communities and geographies in Leeds.
