That is the message from East Hampshire District Council as it reviews its achievements and successes of the last twelve months, and looks forward to an exciting year ahead. Through the publication of its Annual Report Summary 2013-2014, up-beat Council Leader Ferris Cowper and Chief Executive, Sandy Hopkins are proud to report on how the authority continues to deliver successful services to its residents and businesses, whilst giving even greater value for money.
Partnership working with other authorities and the streamlining of services has enabled East Hampshire to keep the Council Tax low, with the intention of keeping it frozen for years to come.
Ambitious plans to make East Hampshire free from government funding are already underway. Innovative ideas and strategies for the future have been put in place as the council strives towards its vision of building a high performing organisation at the heart of a prosperous, vibrant and active district. Making East Hampshire one of the best places in Britain in which to live, work or visit.
Cllr Ferris Cowper, Leader of the East Hampshire District Council, said: “So we are aiming high. We are a very ambitious Council and have a clear vision for the future so that East Hampshire communities will be increasingly prosperous, vibrant and active. We need to make sure we do the right things, for the right people, at the right time. Traditionally Local Authority working has been entirely about delivering services based on legislation or local need. Today, we no longer just deliver these one-size-fits-all services. We now provide services to individuals and businesses based on their particular needs.”
