We have a range of targets, indicators and performance measures. We use these to monitor the progress of the Environment and Liveability Strategy.

To make sure we’re on track, we use annual performance measures and long-term targets. We also monitor and report on our tasks and specific projects.

Our annual report tells you about our progress and what we’ve achieved each year. Read our annual report[1475KB] for 2020/21.

Annual performance measures

Our 5 performance measures are critical indicators of our progress. We use performance measures to inform our corporate reporting. They also help guide our 5-year implementation plan[1407KB] for the strategy.

We report on our 5 performance measures annually.
