I AM so pleased that Fenland District Council is ranked number one out of 388 local authorities.

Fenland is now officially the fastest improving council.

In 2002, when I became leader of the council, I set out a vision statement that outlined the journey of travel for the council. I set about changing the team and reforming the way the council worked.

I remember saying to councillors: "Look at Fenland now. Is this how you want to be in 2007?"

Despite some hard criticism and personal abuse, I was determined to take Fenland along that journey towards this goal.

I am so pleased my policies and predictions have been borne out. I am only sorry that I was not around to see it through, but my congratulations to the leader (Councillor Geoff Harper), officers and members for seeing this through in my absence.

The people of Fenland should not underestimate the importance of this achievement. In local authority terms, it puts Fenland in the premier league.

I am so proud of this. I feel totally vindicated for some of the actions I took.
