Mid Ulster District Council has opened consultation on its priorities for performance improvement in the next two years.
Based on the priorities laid out in its Corporate Plan, and on the themes which emerged as part of the development of the new Community Plan for Mid Ulster a total of 4 improvement objectives have been for the years ahead.
- To assist in the growth of the local economy by increasing the number of visitors to our district.
- To help manage our waste and environment by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
- To improve the accessibility of our services by increasing the number available online.
- To support people to adopt healthier lifestyles by increasing usage of council recreational facilities.
Speaking about the consultation, Chair of the Council’s Policy and Resources Committee, Councillor Phelim Gildernew, said:
“While we are always looking for ways to improve our services, every year the Council must formally set out how it plans to improve its performance with a set of clearly stated objectives.
“The objectives proposed for the next 2 years have their roots in issues which local people and our statutory, voluntary and community partners have already identified as being important to them, so this process is about ensuring we’ve interpreted those needs in the right way.
“I’d encourage local people to take a few minutes to complete our short survey, so we can use their feedback to refine or confirm the objectives”.
