Over the next ten years, the programme, launched in October 2007, is on course to realise gross savings of £625m, said the council.

"After overcoming initial teething troubles, CST is now consistently ensuring that well over 90% of council invoices are paid on time, the best recorded performance the authority has ever enjoyed," the council said.
