Hammersmith and Fulham - best performance across nine London boroughs

We are delighted to say that a recent benchmarking exercise carried out by Lambeth Council shows we have the best performing Enforcement Team across all nine boroughs who took part.  The other councils involved were:

  • Barnet
  • Brent
  • Camden
  • Hackney
  • Kensington and Chelsea
  • Lambeth
  • Southwark
  • Westminster

The results show that we have dealt with far more cases per officer than the other councils.  We have also issued 487 notices which is over three times more than Brent Council, who are the next best performing council.  We have a small team of only five officers, while the average across the boroughs involved was eight per team.  

Our performance review gives further details of investigations, appeals, prosecutions and pro-active enforcement action we have carried out in 2015.
