I received a letter today from Cllr Carter, Cllr Brett and Paul Rogerson. I have included part of the letter for everyone to read ...

"Dear colleague, We are delighted to inform you that the Audit Commission, the independent body that inspects the quality and cost-effectiveness of public services, has today confirmed that the council has achieved the highest possible '4 star' rating. The authority is also assessed as ‘improving well’ which is the second highest award possible in terms of our prospects for further improvement.

The result means that Leeds City Council is once again amongst the best-performing local authorities in the country, and the joint highest-performing council among the large cities.
We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for all the hard work.... This outcome reflects your efforts and commitment to improve the services we collectively deliver to the people of Leeds. The Audit Commission has produced what is essentially the council’s annual ‘school report’ which details what we are doing well and what needs attention.
There will plainly be challenges ahead but we are confident that the Council is well placed to meet them.

Councillor Andrew Carter, Councillor Richard Brett and Paul Rogerson"

A fantastic outcome.
