Local Council Award Scheme
This Award replaced the Quality Council Award which the Council obtained in 2011.
The new Award Scheme recognises and respects the commitment and hard work of the councillors and officers to ensure that it has in place the required documentation and information to operate lawfully and according to standard practice and ensures that the council is delivering to a national professional standard.
It also confirms that the Council has policies for training its councillors and officers and has the foundations for improvement and development in place.
In July 2021 the Council received re-accreditation at Foundation level for a further 4 years.
Presenting the award for Foundation level in the Local Council Award Scheme is Councillor Ray Wickson (Chairman SALC) to Mr Peter Kirton (Chairman of KPC) and Mrs Janette Burgess (clerk of KPC)
