It’s a hat-trick for Leicestershire County Council which has today (Wednesday) been named the most productive council in the country for the third year running.
The council again claimed the top spot in this year’s table compiled by consultancy firm IMPOWER.
The list of 149 councils evaluates council performance by measuring value for money and to what degree each pound spent is improving lives.
Retaining the number one spot for the third year in a row is excellent news.Person:Byron Rhodes, deputy council leader
Transformation remains crucial and by driving down costs and still maintaining services we’ve been able to get extra bang for our buck.
Leicestershire’s position as the lowest funded county in the country is an unenviable one. But one that sharpens our focus on squeezing the best results from a smaller pot. We remain determined to achieve fair funding for Leicestershire since we can do so much more for people.
IMPOWER compares 149 councils in England and looks at a range of areas including overall performance, older people, housing and homelessness and children’s social care.
