Winner of the Local Government Chronicle (LGC) Most Improved Council Award 2010

LGC awardWe have been chosen as the country’s most improved council in the country by judges in the Local Government Chronicle (LGC) awards. The awards recognise achievements and the best in local government. 

A judging panel, made up of chief executives from other English councils, travelled to five short listed councils, including Hull, in January.

They met with the council’s leader and chief executive to find out about how the council had improved key services and residents’ satisfaction levels.

The judges were impressed by the work done to help the city thrive economically and to help its people achieve their potential, improving health and making Hull a safer city.

Some of our achievements include -

  • major reductions in the level of crime and fear of crime, now below the national average
  • reductions in litter, fly posting and graffiti
  • innovative improvements in social care for older people to help them live independently in their own homes
  • improvements in educational attainment, including the city’s best GCSE results, and plans to continue improvement through Hull Challenge
  • dramatic improvements in recycling rates
  • helping residents and businesses through the economic downturn
  • improvements in residents satisfaction levels outlined in the Place Survey and through the council’s people’s panel
  • efficiency savings
