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.
Our initial 4 year accreditation at Foundation Level expired at the end of 2020 and in July 2021 we successfully obtained re-accreditation for another 4 years.
