MY LEARNING SOURCE

Spending money as we would our own

We will always look to spend every penny as if it was from our own family budgets, always looking to be more efficient and cutting back office costs, whilst keeping any council tax increases to an absolute minimum.

Southwark Council has successfully achieved the Institute of Leadership and Management "approved centre" status. 

We have joined the largest awarding body for leadership and management qualifications in the UK.

Transforming public services

We need to deliver more for less as a council. This is about providing quality universal services, like recycling and street cleaning, to a high standard. We will transform local public services through: sharing services; tackling complex problems that individuals and families face in their everyday lives; empowering the community to deliver where they are better able to do so.

Making Southwark a place to be proud of

We will make regeneration work for local people and develop a thirty year housing investment programme.  We will act as responsible guardians and custodians of the public realm. This means we will always take a longer term view, looking after the borough in a sustainable way for future generations.

Realising potential

We will work to ensure that local people are able to realise the potential that living in the heart of London should offer. We will ensure people have decent homes to live in and have a good start in life by getting a good education and healthy food at school. We will work with our residents and partners to make the borough a safer place so that individuals and families can flourish.

Creating a fairer borough

Our aim is to create an environment which provides opportunities to all Southwark's residents, businesses and organisations to engage fully in the community.

 

 

Being more transparent

We will be more accountable to residents and businesses on how services are delivered and we will ensure that we take residents' views into account when we take decisions.
