Government confirm review into Nottingham City Council

Local Government Secretary, Robert Jenrick, has confirmed today (Nov 2), that a rapid non-statutory review will be conducted into Nottingham City Council.

The review will look at governance and risk management issues that came from the Council’s energy firm, Robin Hood Energy, before it was ultimately sold to a private energy company.

The Council has accepted the review and will take on recommendations that are made as a result of the review that is being done following a number of issues raised in a Public Interest Report published in August by Grant Thornton.

The same Public Interest Report has lead to a review of Croydon Council, that was announced last week.

Local Government Secretary Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP said:

“I have been monitoring the very serious situation at Nottingham City Council closely, including the collapse of their Robin Hood Energy scheme.

“A review such as this is not undertaken lightly – councils have a duty to manage taxpayers’ money responsibly and should be held to account where they are found to have failed to do so.

“It is important we work together to turn the council around at this challenging time as they continue to support their community through the pandemic.”
