Entrepreneurial council

  • Comment

Winner: Broxbourne BC

Broxbourne’s whole-council, systematic approach to developing commercial opportunities has increased income from property investments, created a building control company, paid for a new crematorium and mausoleum, and significantly increased usage and surplus from a leisure centre.

Judges’ comments: “This was a comprehensive, council-wide entrepreneurial approach. The council has integrated profit generation into its agenda, whilst delivering the council’s values and have moved from a can-do borough to a will-do borough.”

Highly commended: Reigate and Banstead BC
