This article is old - Published: Wednesday, Mar 22nd, 2017

The Council’s Well-being and Improvement Objectives for 2017-18 were approved in full Council on 16 March 2017.
The decision was made following the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 which places a duty on the Council to set and publish Well-being Objectives which are designed to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being in the county. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The objectives will steer the Council’s efforts to improve the standard of living of people in Ceredigion and to support the local economy. The Council’s five well-being and improvement objectives for 2017-18 are: to create opportunities to improve the local economy and job prospects through sustainable communities; to improve families’ and children’s long term outcomes in terms of their wellbeing, health and their ability to reach their educational potential; promoting individual and community resilience for adults; to improve the availability of safe, affordable homes and safer communities and to maximise the benefits of our culture and environment to develop a sustainable future. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Eirian Davies, Performance and Projects Manager said, “These are the Council’s first set of Well-being Objectives under the new Act and will ensure that the Council will take account of the long term needs of citizens, will help to prevent problems from occurring, will take an integrated and collaborative approach and will involve people of all ages. Now that the objectives have been approved, we can measure the attainment and target resources more effectively to where it is needed.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Well-being and Improvement Objectives 2017-18 fulfils the Council’s duty under the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009 and the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Council will be monitoring achievement against these objectives throughout the year and will publish an annual report outlining its progress in meeting these Well-being and Improvement Objectives no later than 31 March 2019. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
