Changes to how Council measures and reports on performance

Changes to how Council measures and reports on performance

Wednesday, September 21, 2022

The City of Whittlesea’s key performance indicators have been updated following community consultation and were endorsed at the Council Meeting on Monday 19 September 2022.

The strategic indicators are used to measure and report on Council’s progress towards achieving our Whittlesea 2040 vision of A Place for All and the Community Plan 2021-2025.

Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said the changes will result in more comprehensive measurement and reporting aligned to community and organisational needs.

“We have made a number of changes to the original indicators, which have increased from seventeen to twenty-one, and now include measures around mental health, access to open space and carbon emissions,” Ms Wilson said.

“We have also developed four new indicators for the High Performing Organisation goal.”

“Being able to accurately and meaningfully measure our progress across our five goals and 15 key directions means that we can better plan infrastructure, services and programs to meet the diverse needs of our growing population.”

“We will report against these strategic indicators yearly in our Annual Report, providing transparency and accountability for the work Council undertakes.”
