Lewisham LBC leader Dave Sullivan wants to reform the way the council is elected and governed following the 'apathetic' turnout at this year's local elections, the South London Press reports (p31).

He aims to have an elected mayor and cabinet installed with the next year. 'Currently the system represents a by-gone age with slow moving bureaucracy run by amateurs in the twilight hours after they have done a day's work.'

He said Lewisham was now a very well run council but not necessarily a modern one. The council needed modern management and modern relations with the private sector to run services as effectively as it could.

'I am determined that Lewisham will set the style and tone of local government into the next millennium,' he said.
