How we measure our performance against key priorities.
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.

Performance progress reports
Performance reports are produced every 3 months showing progress throughout the year (where quarterly data is available). They're reported publicly through the Bristol City Council Cabinet and Overview and Scrutiny Management Board meetings.
The latest published performance report is for Quarter 3 (October to December 2021) which went to Cabinet in April 2022.
2020/21 Annual Progress
The final year-end results for 2020/21 are included within the above Targets document for those indicators continuing in the current Business Plan.
The full 2020/21 Performance Report against the 2020/21 Business Plan measures, was reported to BCC Cabinet in July 2021. See the year end Performance Progress report for 2020/21 (pdf, 717KB) (opens new window) .
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.
