Public urged to have their say on Council Improvement Objectives

Derry City and Strabane District Council is seeking the views of the public on its recently published draft Performance Improvement Objectives for 2024/25.

Part 12 of the Local Government Act (NI) 2014 legally requires Council to produce a Performance Improvement Plan, (setting out Improvement Objectives), that strives towards continuous improvement in the quality of life of its citizens.

Council is keen to gauge the views of the public on the proposed Improvement Objectives and to find out what alternatives they would like considered.

The draft objectives include promoting healthy lifestyles by achieving greater participation in leisure, sport and physical activities, as well as a commitment to create a greener, cleaner and more attractive district and improved customer support services and are set out on our website.

Encouraging the public to take part in the consultation, Derry City and Strabane District Council Chief Executive, John Kelpie, says public feedback on the draft objectives is important in helping the Council to improve its services and to identify issues that are important to the people across the entire City and District.

“Derry City and Strabane District Council is firmly committed to delivering on continuous improvement,” he explained. “This consultation process is important in gauging opinion that in turn helps us bring about improvements across all areas of our work. We look forward to hearing the views and opinions of the public and would encourage everyone to view the plan and provide their feedback.”

Feedback can be submitted by via the survey link - www.derrystrabane.com/haveyoursay
