Report OS/20/16 provided an update on the Council’s performance for the third quarter of 2020/21, covering 1 October 2020 to 31 December 2020.  The report enables the Council to assess progress against the approved key performance indicators for each service area. 

 

The Performance & Improvement Specialist presented the report and mentioned that this would be the penultimate performance report under the 2017-2020 Corporate Plan as the new Corporate Plan 2021-30 has been adopted.

 

Various comments and questions from members included: 

 

·         The 8 FPNs issued in relation to the PSPO during Quarter 3 were in the Folkestone Town Centre Area, offences included alcohol, urinating and begging. 

·         Compliant air quality sites – 18 sites in the district, a suggestion that a percentage value could be provided. 

·         Recovery rate for PCNs issued to foreign vehicles can be challenging to recover although bailiff action is used. 

·         Homelessness approaches – remaining numbers after prevention/relief are dealt with as part of the Covid response.  A mixture of private landlords; own stock and temporary B & Bs considered.

·         A question was asked about whether sourcing accommodation for people in temporary housing was difficult and the reasons possibly being availability, unsuitability and costs.  A fuller explanation will be provided on this point. 

·         Provision of Affordable housing – may struggle to recover the annual provision as these are also delivered by HA’s, however the asset management strategy will give a clearer picture. Also, the Council’s development of the Highview site is due to start which should provide an additional 30 affordable homes. 

·         Litter cleared within the district – members would like to know how this is assessed and monitored across the district.
