There's missing targets and then there's Greenwich

According to a Council insider, the Council has over £500,000 outstanding in rent arrears from it's tenants. In fairness to the Council, arrears is a fact of life, however what's more worrying is that the Council has apparently missed it's own target to tackle this problem in a spectacularly way.

According to our source, the "Monthly Performance Report" states that "the target is to reduce current arrears by £500,000 by the end of the financial year. This requires a monthly reduction of over £40,000. There was an increase of almost £67,000 rent arrears during June 2006."

Don't expect to see these figures publicised in a press release.
