How we measure our performance against key priorities.
Performance data is available via 2 new dashboards:
- 2023-24 Performance Dashboard (Q1 Cabinet Public): showing Q1 data by Business Plan Themes
- 2023-24 Performance Dashboard (Q1 Scrutiny Public): showing Q1 data by Scrutiny Commissions, for more information on how to use the dashboard check the pdf user guide (618 KB)
Formal performance reports are produced every 3 months. They're reported publicly through Bristol City Council Cabinet and Scrutiny Commissions.
The latest published performance report is 2023/24 Quarter 1 (April to June 2023) which went to Cabinet in October 2023.
Corporate Strategy and Business Plans
The Bristol City Council Corporate Strategy 2022-2027 sets out our contribution to the city and our key priorities over five years.
In addition, each year we publish a Business Plan to outline our priority actions during this financial year, and how we will measure our progress.
These documents are updated on the Corporate Strategy page.
2023/24 Performance Framework
The pdf 2023/24 Performance Framework (152 KB) outlines the approach being taken to Corporate Performance this year. It links to the performance metric and outcome measures in the Business Plan 2023/24 (the second annual plan from our Corporate Strategy 2022–2027).
The pdf Business Plan 2023/2024: Performance Measures and Targets (2.13 MB) appendix lists the targets for each of the performance metrics, plus the year-end results for 2022/2023.
2022/2023 annual progress
The final year-end results for 2022/23 are included within the Targets document above for those indicators continuing in the current Business Plan.
The full 2022/2023 Performance Report against all 2022/2023 Business Plan actions and measures was reported to BCC Cabinet in July 2023. See the year-end Performance Report for 2022/23
Performance reports at Scrutiny
The performance of the council is also reviewed through our Scrutiny function, made up of elected members. These are public meetings.
The Corporate Business Plan is scrutinised at the Overview and Scrutiny Management Board.
There are also four Scrutiny Commissions that look at Performance for specific parts of the Council. Meetings and full performance reports are on committee meetings and reports online. These are presented at the first available meeting following the end of each quarter.
