Haringey is 11th worst council in the country

Haringey Council

An analysis from The Times has shown that Haringey is the 308th best performing council in England - out of 318.

The analysis uses data from the Office for Local Government, a government agency, to rank all councils in England across a range of measures, including recycling rates, road maintenance and the number of complaints upheld against each council.

Haringey performs particularly poorly in the ‘Waste’ and ‘Social Care’ categories of statistics, but the worst showing is in the ‘Finance’ category: 311th, behind even councils like Birmingham which have been forced to issue a Section 114 (bankruptcy) notice.

Cllr Luke Cawley-Harrison (LD-Crouch End), Leader of the Opposition on Haringey Council, said:

"These abysmal statistics speak for themselves: after over 50 years of being run by Labour, Haringey is one of the very worst performing councils in the country. Residents know that services are struggling, but to see it so clearly is still shocking. Labour in Haringey are failing on housing, recycling and so much more. Haringey has received wake up call after wake up call over recent years, but nothing seems to improve. It’s clear that only new leadership will provide the change our borough needs and end the decades of Labour incompetence."
