Our Cabinet has received the annual performance report at their meeting (3 July 2019).

The annual performance report, which aims to highlight key activities of the Council over the preceding 12 months, includes updates on achievements in support of the authority's 'Corporate Plan'.

Councillors heard how 321 households had been rehomed or had homelessness prevented last year, how the service is using a £55,000 grant to end rough sleeping, and how plans for 10,500 new homes to be built in the district under the Local Plan are progressing. 

It was reported that 380 food inspections had been carried out, less than 3% of waste collected was sent to landfill, 100 abandoned vehicles were removed, and almost half a million pounds was given in community grants to 14 local not-for-profit groups. 

Last summer, 1,661 residents took part in the Council's activity roadshows in local parks, and nearly a thousand people were supported back to health by the Active Lifestyles referral programme. 

Leader of New Forest District Council, Cllr Barry Rickman, said "I am really proud of what our staff and services have achieved in the past year, often with limited resources, for our residents.  We continue to focus on what is important to our communities."

The Corporate Plan is a four year document and the current one, 2016 - 2020, has six themes -   helping local business grow, more homes for local people, service outcomes for the community, protecting the local character of our place, working with others to achieve more, and living within our means.
