A review of the way in which we deliver some of our key public services - highways maintenance, waste cleansing and grounds maintenance, is due to start in the coming weeks.
The review will be led by the Lead Member for Environment, Councillor Eleanor Southwood, and will include input from other Ward Councillors, with the aim of developing a wide-ranging plan to tackle consistent issues, and target our limited resources on the things that matter most to residents.
Cllr Southwood said:
"We will be looking at where current demand is, and will be focusing on the main issues of importance raised by residents, to make sure our services remain relevant and effective in meeting the needs of the borough. A central part of the exercise will be evaluating what is working well and where the consistent challenges lie, and what we can do to make sure we have the strongest structures in place to ensure good quality, sustainable services for residents going forward."
This review is intended to be focussed and concise, and we expect to have the outcomes in late autumn this year.
