Budget & Council Practices

I have helped deliver a balanced budget every year, despite losing an unprecedented £166M in grant funding, equivalent to over 60% of the council budget, whilst retaining vital services and investing in infrastructure.


Redbridge has been recognised as one of the most cost-effective councils in the UK.


iMPower recognised Redbridge as one of the most cost-effective councils in 2018, noting that we are delivering the best results from limited resources.


Under my leadership the council has reduced Agency headcount by 65%, increasing permanent employment.

Under my leadership, the London Living Wage has been introduced council-wide.


I have worked closely with Unions to develop and implement transformational working practices at the council while maintaining staff satisfaction.


I have launched the biggest capital program in the history of the borough to target return on investment rather than cuts to services.


We are bringing bin collections back in-house, outsourcing has failed, an in-house service will improve quality for residents and put money into the pockets of our hardworking staff.
