Cllr David Slater CC, Leader of Charnwood Borough Council writes..

I would like to take this opportunity to express my personal thanks to all the residents of Charnwood who took the time to vote at the Borough Elections on 5th May. I was heartened that turnout was higher than normal and that residents chose to show their approval for our performance over the past four years by giving us a renewed mandate to carry on our work.

We have made great progress since 2007, returning the Council’s finances to good health by cutting costs whilst preserving frontline services, and improving those services we provide to you by working smarter and sharing resources with our neighbouring councils.

Our work over the next four years will be just as important, and we have pledged to make Charnwood Borough Council even more efficient, enabling us to keep finances in good shape and your Council Tax bills low, whilst providing services of the highest quality, focussed on your needs and requirements.

We will continue to work for all our residents, and will always welcome your views on what we do, and how we could do it better. Once again, on behalf of my team at Charnwood, I would like to thank you for your support.
