Housing Benefit Performance

The Council aims to improve its benefits service by monitoring and reporting its performance to help identify risks to continuous improvement.

Each year the Council prepares a Benefits Business Plan and a Fraud Prevention and Investigation Plan to set out the specific objectives and targets of the Housing Benefit service and to compare performance against previous years.  The business plans can be viewed from Related Links on the left of this web page.

  • 15 March 2012 (item 8.3) - Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit Risk Assessment;
  • 24 June 2014 (item 13.3) - Review of recovery of benefits subsidy in 2012/13;
  • 30 September 2014 (item 10.1) - Benefits Performance Audit Annual Update 2013/14.
