Mid Ulster Residents’ Views Sought on Council Improvement Objectives

Mid Ulster District Council is currently consulting on its draft 2023 to 2024 Performance Improvement Objectives and would like to hear the views of Mid Ulster residents on the draft priorities put forward.  

Chair of the Council’s Policy and Resource Committee, Councillor Sharon McAleer is encouraging residents and businesses to respond to the consultation before the closing date of Friday 21 April at 12 noon, saying, 

“We want to deliver the best possible services to everyone who uses them. The Council has developed four Improvement Objectives which have our citizen’s needs at the heart of our service delivery and focus on improving outcomes for our residents. 

“As your local council, we are afforded a unique opportunity to oversee improving the quality of life of the residents of the district. With this custodial role comes the responsibility of making sure that everything we do is for the benefit of our district and our residents. We have an opportunity to harness the benefits and minimise the negative impacts on our district through our statutory and democratic roles.” 

The proposed draft improvement objectives for the coming financial year are:

Objective One: Mid Ulster District Council will seek to reduce the environmental impacts of our own activities and will contribute to the improvement of the wider environment through local action.

Objective Two: We will ensure a more connected Mid Ulster where new technologies and ways of working empower citizens to get the best services that matter to them.

Objective Three: To create cleaner neighbourhoods, where everyone takes responsibility for their waste and the environment.

Objective Four: We will contribute to the ongoing regeneration of our district by delivering a capital investment programme, enhancing facilities and opportunities for local people.

If you would like further information on each of the objectives or would like to respond to the consultation, you can complete a short form online, or download a copy from the same location and return to your local Council office or by post to: 

Performance and Quality Officer, Mid Ulster District Council, Circular Road, Dungannon BT71 6DT. 

You can also email your feedback to using the subject heading: ‘Response to Council Performance Objective Consultation’. All responses must be received by 12 noon on Friday 21st April 2023.

Once the Council has considered the feedback received, it will draw up and publish a Corporate Improvement Plan, setting out the Improvement Objectives, which will be monitored across the year. Council is committed to publishing a final report on its improvement performance by the autumn of 2023.
