Neath Port Talbot Corporate Improvement Plan 2014-2017,
Consultation on proposed activities for 2014-2015
The Council has a legal duty to consult on the
improvement priorities (referred to as our improvement objectives)
contained in the Corporate Improvement Plan (CIP) each year as per
the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009.
We therefore now set out the actions we intend
to take in the next twelve months to progress the six improvement
objectives that were established by the political administration
elected in May 2012. We have made good progress in the first
twelve months and intend to introduce a sharper focus in the next
twelve months, taking account of the very challenging financial
context within which we need to work.
Our six improvement objectives
1. Improve outcomes for
children in need and children looked after by improving the
performance of the Council's Children and Young People Services
2. Raise the
educational standards and attainment for all young people.
3. Maximise the number
of adults who are able to live independently, with or without
support within the home of their choice within their community.
4. Support and invest
in our town centres and communities to promote economic growth,
regeneration and sustainability to maximise job opportunities and
improve access to employment.
5. Increase the
percentage of waste recycled and composted.
customer/citizen access to services and functions provided by the
Council, or on behalf of the Council and to improve the efficiency
of those services and functions.
Consultation: We are consulting on the
activities proposed to deliver each of the improvement objectives
in 2014-2015. We would like you to tell us if these are clear
and if you believe they will help us to achieve our improvement
objectives by completing the following questionnaire on our

Period: The consultation will end on

appropriate amend the plan accordingly.
