The KPIs relating to the “Safe, Clean and Green” priority are all performing well with all of the targeted KPIs achieving their Quarter 2 targets. Three KPIs show an improvement compared to Quarter 2 last year (in addition the PI Average weight of fly-tipped collected materials (kg) is also showing). Four KPIs show improvement in performance compared to Quarter 1 this year.

 

During Quarter 2 the Clean Street consultation concluded with a total of 1,785 responses. This showed that 44% of respondents think that their local area is “fairly clean” or “very clean”. The survey also asked respondents about fly-tipping hotspots and how they think different cleaning issues have changed over the last three years.

There are five targeted KPIs that relate to the priority “Homes & Communities”; three of these (60%) have been rated green as they have achieved their quarterly targets, two have been rated amber and have missed the target by less than 10%. 

 

In total 139 households were housed through the Housing Register during Quarter 2, which is marginally less than the target of 150. For the last three years the aim has been to house a minimum of 600 households from the Register each year, however this is dependent on housing providers having vacant properties available. The team have reported that this, coupled with a limited number of new units being delivered, has resulted in the target being marginally missed. If this trend continues it is likely that the annual target will not be achieved.

 


 

The percentage of successful duty outcomes has marginally missing the quarterly target. The Quarter 2 outturn is an improvement from Quarter 1 when just under half of relief cases had successful outcomes (47.18%). While there is no overlap between Homelessness Prevention cases and Homelessness Relief cases, there is overlap between Relief cases and where a main housing duty is owed. Therefore, it is expected that the ability to relieve Homelessness in such cases will be contingent on properties being available.
