Fairer future promises

The council plan confirmed our ten Fairer Future promises, a set of key commitments to the residents and businesses  of Southwark that outline the things we will be working towards as an organisation to create a fairer future for all.

Promise 1 - Provide improved value for money and keep council tax increases below inflation

Promise 2 - Work with residents and the police to make the borough safer for all by cracking down on antisocial behaviour and implementing our new violent crime strategy

Promise 3 - Deliver the first three years of our five year plan to make every council home warm, dry and safe

Promise 4 Improve our customer service with more online services, including delivery of a better housing repairs service, independently verified by tenants

Promise 5Introduce free healthy school meals for all primary school pupils, and champion improved educational attainment for our borough's children

Promise 6Support vulnerable people to live independent, safe and healthy lives by giving them more choice and control over their care

Promise 7 - Encourage healthy lifestyles by transforming Burgess Park, opening a new swimming pool at Elephant and Castle and awarding £2m to local projects to leave a lasting Olympic legacy

Promise 8Open Canada Water Library in autumn 2011, open a library in Camberwell and conduct a thorough review of the library service

Promise 9 - Bring the full benefits and opportunities of regeneration to all Southwark's residents and build new family homes on the Aylesbury Estate and at Elephant and Castle

Promise 10 - Double recycling rates from 20 per cent to 40 per cent by 2014 and keep our streets clean
