What is Housing Performance data?

Throughout the housing service we collect a range of information known as performance data, for example how long it takes to deliver a particular service. This allows us to measure how well we are delivering our services, how satisfied you are with our services and to track our performance quarterly and annually.

We also compare our performance against other Councils and Housing Associations of a similar size as this is good practice and helps identify areas for improvement.

What do we do with this data?

Our performance and survey data is used by the Housing Management and Asset Management Teams to highlight any areas of concern as well as good performance. It also allows the team to look at what actions need to be taken as a result. Issues would be raised at meetings with our contractors or further research undertaken including increasing visits to blocks/estates or amending our processes to find methods to create a better service.

All this data therefore is used to help us make decisions and look at ways to improve our service delivery.

We are always looking at ways we can provide meaningful information to share with our residents, and help present them in a way that out residents will find useful and interesting. If you're interested in helping scrutinising services, please get in touch with Beth Becks at Beth.Becks@dover.gov.uk

We share data with the Dover District Tenant Group, who use the information to scrutinise services and hold DDC to account.
