TWO-STAR RATING PUTS AN END TO HULL MONITORING

Kingston-upon-Hull City Council has emerged from four years of government intervention, having gained a two-star rating from the Audit Commission.

But it is to shed some 330 posts as budget cuts bite, mainly in back office roles.

The council, once notorious as the only top-tier authority with a 'poor' comprehensive performance assessment, had to make monthly progress reports to a monitoring board

of Department for Communities & Local Government civil servants.

Chief executive Kim Ryley said: 'We can now move forward without the distraction of government monitoring.

'There has been a lot of progress on internal processes and now there will be more emphasis on quality of life issues like anti-social behaviour, health inequalities and social cohesion.'
