Lewisham Council Corporate Assessment

I really don’t have much time this week but thought I’d share a few sentences from a document I was sent about Lewisham council.  The judgement is the Audit Commission’s:

The Council is performing strongly. It is working for and delivering real improvements for Lewisham. It is with its partners extremely ambitious in creating and seizing opportunities to improve life chances for its young people and regenerate its diverse area, many parts of which are deprived but well-placed to develop…

Excellent transformational leadership by the Mayor and Chief Executive, both of whom operate successfully at partnership, community, regional and national level is well-supported by committed Councillors and staff. The Mayor leads across the Borough as a whole with high visibility and a consensual style that fosters high-trust partnerships.

Good to see that things haven’t fallen appart since I was thown out on my ear.

My congratulations to all of those involved.
