Local Council Award Scheme
At the January meeting of Shurdington Parish Council, Ms Alison Robinson attended to award the parish council with a certificate for the Foundation level of the Local Council Award Scheme.
The Local Council Award Scheme exists to celebrate the successes of the very best local councils, and to provide a framework to support all local councils to meet their full potential. All local councils want to serve their local communities and make a real difference to the lives of the people that live there. This scheme offers councils the opportunity to show that they meet the standards set by the sector, assessed by their peers, and to put in place the conditions for continued improvement.
The Foundation Award demonstrates that a council meets requirements for operating lawfully and according to standard practice.
