It’s official! The announcement of today’s Audit Commission results sees Kent County Council awarded the maximum Four Star rating – one of only three Counties alongside Hampshire and Leicestershire.
We were also awarded two ‘green flags’ – a note of best practice – for our work matching young people’s skills to employment, and for our innovative Gateway programme, where multi agency services are offered from High Street shop locations.
I was gratified also that my “Backing Kent Business” campaign was mentioned as an effective way to support our business community through the recession.
High praise indeed. But knowing KCC, the pressure is always on to be even better.
