Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is committed to achieving continuous improvement in the exercise of its functions as set out in the forward thinking themes detailed within the Corporate Strategy. The Council has developed a Performance Improvement Policy to underpin its continuous improvement approach and this includes a framework cycle that reviews annual performance and identifies on going improvements and measurement. Many of the projects within the Performance Improvement Plan will continue for an extended period of time to assess longer term performance improvements and impacts.
