This article is old - Published: Saturday, Apr 2nd, 2016

Following a Council meeting last week (Thursday 24 March) five improvement objectives have been agreed and will outline how Ceredigion County Council proposes to improve services in the county. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

​As part of a consultation with residents and other key stakeholders at the start of this year, the Council has taken on board the feedback received, and will now focus on five areas of improvement during 2016-2017. These areas also link with and support the Strategic Objectives of the Council and the Single Integrated Plan ‘Ceredigion for All.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The objectives range from improving the delivery of cost effective services to improving the local economy and increasing job prospects. Residents will also see projects like the Mill Street development in Aberystwyth coming to fruition, and the opening of the first purpose built 3-19 school in Wales – Ysgol Bro Teifi in September 2016. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Russell Hughes-Pickering is Head of Performance and Economy at Ceredigion County Council said: “Our Improvement Objectives have a clear focus on improving services for our residents and the Council is committed to meeting the needs of our residents, and to be clearer about the standards of service that everyone should expect.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Council will be monitoring achievement against these objectives throughout the year and will publish a Performance Review document in October 2017 that will describe whether the Improvement Objectives have been achieved. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
