NALC announces the latest Local Council Award Scheme results
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has announced the latest Local Council Award Scheme (LCAS) results.
Fownhope Parish Council in Herefordshire has achieved the Quality Gold Award. The Quality Gold Award demonstrates that a council aspires to excellence and is at the forefront of best practice by achieving a high standard in community governance, leadership and performance management.
Little Paxton Parish Council in Cambridgeshire and Old Marston Parish Council in Oxfordshire have both achieved the Quality Award. The Quality Award demonstrates that a council performs good practice in governance, community engagement and council improvement, going beyond its legal obligations and continuously seeking opportunities to improve and develop.
Ashchurch Rural Parish Council in Gloucestershire, Frodsham Town Council in Cheshire, Harby Parish Council in Nottinghamshire and Waltham on the Wolds & Thorpe Arnold Parish Council in Leicestershire have all achieved the Foundation Award. The Foundation award demonstrates that a council has the required documentation and information to operate lawfully and according to standard practice and has the foundations and policies for improvement and development in place.
LCAS has been designed to celebrate the successes of the best local (parish and town) councils and provide a framework to support all local councils to improve and develop to their full potential.
NALC congratulates all local councils awarded under the scheme and encourages more local councils to become accredited.
