Comprehensive area assessment 

Council performance

We believe that our work is all about improving lives for the residents, visitors and customers in the city. Our ultimate measure of success is whether we are delivering the outcomes that people need and want.

As with every local authority, those outcomes form the basis of our sustainable community strategy which provides the focus for all partners in the city. This strategy has four themes -

  • earning - the people of Hull thrive economically
  • learning - children and young people achieve their full potential
  • healthy - the people of Hull make healthy lifestyle choices
  • safe - the people of Hull live in a safe and sustainable city

Measuring our success

We measure our success in delivering this strategy using the measures in our Local Area Agreement.

Each year the Audit Commission review how we are doing. The comprehensive area assessment (CAA) is a new way of assessing local public services in England and looks at improving outcomes for local people.

We keep our own check on how we are doing in achieving the outcomes that are measured by the Local Area Agreement.

This level of improvement was recognised recently by experts in local government, when the council was named 'most improved council of the year' at the LGC awards in March 2010.
