Services across Bexley continue to be well run and of high quality.
The latest statistical update to the Cabinet confirms that across all department areas the London Borough of Bexley has services which are highly rated and which lead London or the country.
The report that shows:
- 16 residents with disabilities secured funding from the £2.4m Disabled Facilities Grant to adapt their homes to suit their particular needs in June alone.
- 87% of Bexley’s schools are rated as good or outstanding.
- 54% of all household waste is recycled – a 2% increase on the year before.
- Bexley has the highest number of young people under 19 undertaking apprenticeships in London.
- Complaints about street cleanliness have fallen again, following the major investment programme agreed in 2017.
- 100% of vulnerable adults who were discharged from hospital were able to be cared for in their own homes within the 91 day target.
Leader of Bexley’s Conservative Council, Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, said:
“We never waver from our focus of running one of the UK’s most successful Councils, delivering high quality local services for local residents 365 days a year.
We all work hard to ensure Bexley remains one of the best places in the country to live, receive an education, raise a family, start a business or find a good job.
This report shows that we continue to be a Council that delivers for everyone in our Borough all the time.”
The latest data follows a successful summer where Bexley’s Danson Park was named London’s Best Park, the Erith Park housing scheme was formally opened, and thousands of residents came to events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic in a place built in Crayford. The event itself was marked with a Royal visit.
A spokesperson for Bexley’s Conservative Councillors added:
“This latest information will be a huge embarrassment for Labour Councillors and their supporters who have condemned, opposed and voted against every single one of the policies that have delivered such success for our Borough.
While we stay focused on running our Borough, Labour Councillors and supporters just focus on running down our Borough.”
