Congratulations to Darren Rodwell, the Leader of the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Council, who has been named ‘Leader of the Year’ in the Local Government Information Unit Awards for England and Wales – the most prestigious award for a councillor.

Darren’s well-deserved award recognises his commitment to local government and the growth of the Borough since he became the Council’s Leader in 2014.  SOG Group worked closely with Darren and LBBD during the creation of our former sister site, Londoneast-uk Business and Technical Park, which is now owned and operated by an LBBD trading company.
