[07 DEC 98] WARWICKSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Praise For Rural Team

In a national first Warwickshire County Council’s Rural Estate Management Team have been given the thumbs up by independent property experts Bruton Knowles.

An audit team from Bruton Knowles reviewed the process over a six month period, examining the work methods and management techniques of the five people who make up the Rural Estate Team.

No other council has pitched itself against other local authorities and the private sector to see how they ranked in terms of good working practices.

Peter Ridley, Director of Property Services, is delighted with the report:

"I think the report is a tribute to the dedication and hard work of the Rural Estate Management Team and to the support and encouragement of the members of the Smallholdings Tenants Sub-Committee.

"The report proves that we provide a quality service and that we offer good value for money. Whilst we can’t be complacent, I think this does show that we are on the right track!"
