Members considered a report which presented details of the headline performance and finance issues for the third quarter of 2010-11, covering the period from 1 April to 31 December 2010.

 

Some good performance results had been achieved over this period, including more residents helped to live independently, significant improvements to street cleanliness, a continued reduction in waste going to landfill, reduced crime levels, and a 60% reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured on the roads.  It was noted that York continued to buck the national trend in many areas of the economy, with less unemployment, fewer young people not in employment, education or training (NEET), a 73% increase in affordable housing and a reduction in homelessness.

 

With regard to finance, pressures of £1,668k were currently forecast, representing an improvement of £1,404k since the second monitoring report.  This was inclusive of £2,287k in-year cuts in grant funding from central government.  Directorates were working to reduce these pressures, in line with the strategy agreed at Monitor 2.

 

RESOLVED: (i)         That the performance issues identified in the report be noted.

 

REASON:      So that corrective action on these issues can be taken by Members and directorates.

 

                        (ii)            That the finance issues identified in the report be noted.
