To consider the report of the Corporate Director of Transformation and Resources.
Consideration was given to the report of the Corporate Director of Transformation and Resources as contained on pages 529 to 535 of the Book of Reports, which was to consider the Corporate Performance Plan for 2021/22, and Key Performance Indicators, as set out at appendix A.
The Partnership and Performance Officer outlined the report and responded to questions raised in relation to digital services and the measurement of Citizens satisfaction in respect of this.
A question was raised in respect of the Priority to 'Become a Greener West Lancashire' regarding why the target of 50% for recycling, had not been met, and the reason for the proposed 1% incremental target set for 2021/22.
The Corporate Director of Place and Community advised Members that recycling targets are set by the Waste Framework Directive, and are agreed collectively across Lancashire. She gave examples of previous measures introduced including, bin swaps and the collection and recycling of various plastic types, not just plastic bottles as it had been previously. She also advised that West Lancshire Borough Council is governed by Lancashire County Council (LCC) in terms of the type of waste that is permitted to be collected.
RESOLVED: That the suite of Key Performance Indicators 2021/22 set out at Appendix A be considered and noted.
