Many congratulations to Carl Minns and his team in Hull on this much deserved accolade:
Hull City Council has been crowned the most improved in England, six years after it came bottom in a survey of 150 local authorities.
Hull beat four other councils to win the ‘Most Improved Title’ at the Local Government Chronicle awards…
Leader of Hull City Council, Carl Minns said: “The most important factor is to ensure that residents get excellent quality services but it is always good to have external recognition of the improvements to services.” [BBC]
The local newspaper adds:
Reductions in litter, fly posting and graffiti, a drop in the level of crime and improvements in education were cited as some of the reasons for the award. [Hull Daily Mail]
