Planning Annual Performance Report 2016 – 2017
The Annual Performance Report is produced by all Welsh Authorities and provides an overview of the performance of the Planning Service during 2016/17. It demonstrates to the public how Authorities are performing against Welsh Government indicators and targets.
A good Planning Service is central to the Council’s strategic aims of generating economic growth and inward investment as well as protecting our countryside, local communities and culture. I would endorse the contents of this report which shows that despite recent financial cutbacks, Wrexham’s Planning Service continues to perform well. The Service has successfully responded and adapted to changing circumstances and fully embraces Welsh Government’s Planning Agenda. I am satisfied the report confirms the Planning Service is at least comparable and in many areas out-performs other Welsh Authorities despite the relative small team and limited resources.
We remain committed to continuous improvements and will seek to engage the stakeholders to meet the challenges ahead.
