Local Council Awards
The Local Council Award Scheme was launched on January 6th 2015. It exists to celebrate the successes of the very best local councils and to provide a framework of support for all local councils in meeting their full potential.
Councils can apply for an award at one of three levels:
The Foundation Award demonstrates that a council meets the minimum requirements for operating lawfully and according to standard practice.
The Quality Award demonstrates that a council achieves good practice in governance, community engagement and council improvement.
The Quality Gold Award demonstrates that a council is at the forefront of best practice and achieves excellence in governance, community leadership and council development.
Councils are reviewed by an accreditation panel and must pay a registration fee and an accreditation fee.
