London local government is joining up to ensure weaker councils gain the support of their counterparts rather than a lambasting from inspectors.

The Capital Ambition initiative will see London boroughs receive advice from another council of a comparable political colour that has encountered similar problems.

It is hoped the partnership will ensure each borough gains at least a two-star comprehensive performance assessment rating by December 2008.

Derek Myers, the chairman of the partnership board and chief executive of Kensington & Chelsea LBC, said: 'Councillors and managers have come to recognise that poor quality services anywhere in London undermine the reputation of London's local government.'
