At the Council meeting on 18th March, I was asked to sum up my year as Leader of Redbridge Council.
For me it has been a real honour and privilege to serve the people of Redbridge. I have carried out eight ‘Meet the Council Leader’ events around the Borough in the last few months and I have valued being able to hear about residents concerns and expectations face-to-face.
Affordable housing and improved leisure facilities in the south of the Borough are two issues that have come up repeatedly. I am proud that we have introduced the Redbridge Card, which offers residents discounts and supports local businesses during these tough economic times I was also pleased that there was cross-party support for the Budget for next year with no increase in Council tax.
