Mid and East Antrim Borough Council has begun a public consultation on its Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) for the year 2022-2023, which is the council’s annual plan to ensure continuous improvement in service delivery.
Residents, companies, and community groups from around the Borough are encouraged to evaluate the draught plan and provide feedback on Council’s proposed improvement objectives during the consultation period, which runs until May 24, 2022.
The planned improvement objectives for 2022/2023 cover six main areas:
- Growing the economy and creating jobs.
- Supporting the communities within the historic conservation area of Carrickfergus, contributing to the sustainability of the local economy.
- Supporting MEA’s citizens’ health and wellbeing by providing quality, inclusive play and recreation facilities, and promoting safe and responsible outdoor recreation.
- Improving infrastructure to encourage electric vehicle uptake in the Borough to reduce emissions and protect the environment for future generations.
- Creating an Autism Friendly Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.
- Improving customer engagement and service delivery by enhancing Council’s use of information technology.
Councillor William McCaughey, Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, is encouraging residents, businesses, and community organisations to participate in the consultation and make their voices known.
“As a Council, our duty is matched by our strong desire to drive performance and continuous improvement in the service we provide to the people of Mid and East Antrim,” he said. “To do so, we rely very much on their feedback and, as such, welcome all comments and suggestions received through this consultation process.
“Underpinned by our Performance Management Framework, our proposed improvement objectives for the 2022/2023 period align closely to Council’s key priorities within our Community and Corporate Plans.
“Our improvements focus on the issues that are important to the people of Mid and East Antrim, helping to improve the quality of life for all. For the upcoming year, we will also continue to focus on recovery and adapting to the ‘new normal’, taking proactive measures to minimise any lasting negative implications from the Covid-19 pandemic.”
