Babergh District Council - What have we done for you, 2019 - 2022 report

What have we done for you 2022 3 A message from our Council Leader and Chief Executive Since 2011, Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils have answered the challenges facing local government by developing a new way of delivering council services. In the last 11 years, we have saved £2million each year across the two councils by delivering our services under a joint Chief Executive and fully shared staff structure. Over the last four years, Babergh District Council, working with our Mid Suffolk colleagues, has been on a journey to improve the way we do things. This report aims to provide the opportunity to reflect on Babergh’s performance, successes and awards since 2019. During this time, we have continued to deliver vital services for you despite the impact caused by the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic. We are now focused on resetting following the pandemic and responding to the impact of global challenges on our communities such as the cost-of-living crisis and climate change. We are buoyed by the fantastic support of local community groups, businesses, volunteers and partners with whom we work, and we could not be prouder of our dedicated councillors and staff, who work tirelessly to support our communities.
