Your elected mem­bers have big as­pi­ra­tions for how Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay District Coun­cil should be de­liv­er­ing value for the com­mu­nity and their ap­proach has been brave, pa­tient and fu­ture-fo­cussed. We have been care­fully putting the build­ing blocks in place for two years now and I am in­cred­i­bly proud of where we have got to. Last week, a vol­un­tary, in­de­pen­dent as­sess­ment grad­ing for our per­for­mance in the lo­cal govern­ment sec­tor was re­leased – giv­ing us a “BB” grad­ing. What does this mean? The per­for­mance of your Coun­cil sits about “mid­dle of the pack” amongst other coun­cils from around the coun­try. What is recog­nised by the as­sess­ment is the progress of the changes we have put in place – with very pos­i­tive feed­back on our gover­nance, lead­er­ship and en­gage­ment with our com­mu­nity. Our path­way of “trans­for­ma­tion”, and re­build­ing trust with our com­mu­nity is still only just be­gin­ning and we have many chal­lenges yet to work through. The Coun­cilMARK as­sess­ment gives us, and our com­mu­nity an in­cred­i­ble con­fi­dence boost to con­tinue to move for­ward with surety. The Coun­cilMARK As­sess­ment is avail­able on our web­site and search­ing Coun­cilMARK.
