Broxtowe praised as an ambitious Council in latest Local Government Review
The peers highlighted the passion that shines through from Councillors and Officers when delivering on climate change.
The Council, alongside the Local Government Association has published a new report that shows that a peer review of the Council has come out with positive findings.
“Broxtowe not only has ambitious plans, but is backing that ambition up with the delivery of town centre investments”.
Feedback from partners was described as “glowing”- they felt engaged and could see that the Council is making a difference to its residents. Senior local government peers were led by Councillor Elizabeth Dennis-Harburg (Leader of North Hertfordshire District Council) and Stephen Evans (Chief Executive of Norwich City Council) as they undertook the review in December 2022. In order to reach their conclusions, the peers met over 100 people related to the Council, such as Councillors, employees and partners whilst also consulting a wide range of background material.
Alongside the positive comments, the review also set out some key recommendations for further development in Broxtowe in the full report.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Milan Radulovic MBE said, 'Broxtowe is a great place to live and work and I’m happy to receive such glowing feedback from the review. The team were impressed with our approach to place shaping when it comes to regeneration, housing and infrastructure and that we are leading the way when it comes to taking action on climate change.
We will now take on board the feedback from the team and continue to improve and lead the way when serving our communities.’
Broxtowe Borough Council Chief Executive Ruth Hyde said, ‘I’m delighted to receive such positive outcomes from our recent review. At Broxtowe we really care for our communities and our employees and it’s great to hear that the team highlighted the passion and effort from our Councillors, employees and partners as we all work to serve our communities.
We will now work on our key recommendations for development so we can continue to be a Council that cares for its residents.’
