North Ayrshire Council Plan

The North Ayrshire Council Plan is our key strategic document. It describes our aims and ambitions for the next 5 years.

You can track progress towards the plan's priorities by reading the Council Plan Progress Update: Mid-Year 2019/20 (PDF, 2.8mb).

If you have any questions or comments on the plan, please get in touch.

Annual Performance Reports

Our Annual Performance Reports provide a balanced view of the council's progress in achieving its priorities.

Reports include information on successes, challenges and performance in achieving the strategic priorities of the Council Plan:

We carried out a survey of our People's Panel, with 63% of all respondents telling us they were aware that the council published an annual report.

Key Performance Symbols

The Key of Performance Symbols (PDF, 213kb) provides explanations for the main symbols that appear in the North Ayrshire Performs Portal.

Golden Thread

North Ayrshire Council's Framework includes the strategies, plans, indicators, targets and standards that enable the performance of the Council to be monitored.

The golden thread shows how our plans fit together. It connects the strategic objectives of the Council and partners with the actions of managers and staff at directorate, operational, team and individual level.

As well as the Local Outcome Improvement Plan and Council Plan, there are strategies that support:

  • governance
  • the management of resources
  • the development of a performance management culture

The Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP) 

The Local Outcome Improvement Plan is an agreement between the Community Planning Partnership (CPP) and the Scottish Government.

It sets out what we hope to achieve as a partnership for the people and communities of North Ayrshire.

Community Planning Partnership (CPP) Annual Report

The North Ayrshire CPP Annual Report demonstrates the work jointly carried out by CPP partners.

Directorate Plans

Directorate Plans set out what Council directorates want to deliver in the coming year.

Performance Management Strategy and Framework

The Performance Management Strategy and Framework focuses on embedding a performance management culture throughout the Council. Self assessment is central in our approach.
