North Norfolk District Council manages the risks associated with delivering services in an active way. This applies to services we deliver ourselves and services we deliver in partnership with other organisations.
A certain amount of risk is necessary and indeed it can be a positive force in the development of the services we provide.
We have a Risk Management Framework which shows how we manage risk.
The Council manages risk by keeping two lists of our risks. These lists show an assessment of the risk and the action being taken or needed to reduce the risk to the level needed.
The first list is called the Corporate Risk Register. This register records the risks and opportunities that may affect the delivery of the Corporate Plan. The top ten risks on the register forms part of the normal agenda for the Audit Committee.
The second list is called the Service Risk Register. This register records the risks and opportunities that may affect the delivery of individual service plans.
Information on the risk registers are held within the Councilís performance management tool. The link between performance and risk is currently under development and when fully utilised will be able to produce management reports and link risks to key corporate and service objectives.
