We are pleased to publish our Corporate Plan for 2016-2019.
This year's Corporate Plan reflects the reduction of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) to £39.3m as announced in the 2015 Autumn Statement, whilst allowing us to continue to provide high quality regulatory services.
We have carefully reviewed the level of core services we are able to offer and have reduced our budgeted costs from last year by 14 per cent. We recognise that this saving does not fully reflect the overall reduction in the fund, however we consider it is important to note that we require a minimum level of funding to deliver our core functions, or we will be unable to provide assurance to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) that the LCF is regulated to an appropriate standard.
With this background our 2016-2019 Corporate Plan is focused on the following key strategic themes:
- strategic changes - update and reform of the LCF;
- demonstrating Value for Money (VfM) of the LCF; and
- service improvement and delivery.
The summary document outlines our plans and our agreed Key Performance Indicators for the coming year. You can also read the document in full for further detail on our plans.
