Rushcliffe Borough Council named Entrepreneurial Council of the Year

Rushcliffe Borough Council has been named Entrepreneurial Council of the Year at the prestigious annual LGC Awards.

Judges cited the council’s approach to making the most of its assets in recent years to deliver a new leisure centre and offices at Rushcliffe Arena, shrewdly investing in property and transforming its grounds maintenance programme with the creation of Streetwise.

Borough Council Chief Executive Allen Graham believes that Councillors’ and officers’ ambition and support for a business-like approach enabled the team to scoop the award.

He said: “This truly is a team award down to individual leadership and selfless flexibility from so many Councillors and staff to have achieved such magnificent recognition. It is acknowledgement for them all who are among the pioneers for being an enterprising council that delivers great services.

“The judges recognised our breadth of entrepreneurial delivery right across the council and that our success was owned and driven by all. I am proud to be Chief Executive of this ambitious council and what we have achieved together for the benefit of the wonderful place and community of Rushcliffe.”

Leader of the Council Cllr Simon Robinson equally praised members and officers for their foresight to deliver projects that have put the authority on a road to being self-sufficient without Central Government funding.

He said: “I am exceptionally proud the Council has won this award and continue to say to our peers being entrepreneurs really is in our DNA as councillors and staff. The fact industry leaders have now echoed this is a credit to all. This award will only spur us on to achieve even more for our residents and build on this platform of our reputation in the sector.”
