Service Plans - Overview

Argyll and Bute delivers a wide range of services, from libraries to waste management; from schools to economic development; from ferry services to planning.

Each Service has key delivery aims that are aligned to the Corporate Plan and the Single Outcome Agreement. This is detailed within the Service Plan.

To support the delivery and reporting of key aims there are relevant plans, policies and reports. You can find more information on these by following the links below on each Service page.

As of 1 April 2016 The Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership is the body that oversees the delivery of Adult Care and Children and Families services. Performance will be reported through the Partnership. You can find information on the Health and Social Care Partnership here. Read performance information prior to 1 April 2016

From 1 October 2017 Community and Culture services are delivered by LiveArgyll. You can find current performance information on the LiveArgyll Website here.

Argyll and Bute Council isn't a social housing provider. Social housing and other housing options within the area are managed by several social housing providers. You can access information on the providers and the services they provide along with advice on the HOME Argyll website.


Every year an Annual Performance Review is undertaken by each Service, this provides the mechanism to review the previous year’s key successes and challenges and identify key improvements for the coming year. Again, you can find more information for each Service by clicking the link to each Service above

Following on from the Annual Performance Review each Service builds an Improvement Plan to ensure it captures the key challenges and actions required for the coming year.

Each year a personal, confidential Performance Review and Development (PRD) is performed. The PRD ensures that staff are clear about their individual contribution to the Councils overall objective and the targets are aligned to the vision and key priorities and objectives.
