AchievementGreat Shelford Parish Council has today received confirmation that they have been awarded the Foundation Level of the Local Council Award Scheme.

By achieving this award level, your parish council has shown that it meets a minimum set of standards to deliver effectively for our community.  We hold the required documentation and information in place (generally on this website) to operate lawfully and according to standard practice.  We also have in place policies for training councillors and staff, meaning that we have improvement and development at the forefront of our aims and objectives.

So what is next?  …Quality Award.

We will be aiming for the Quality Award which we believe we are already working to, but have to provide the evidence which includes demonstrating good governance, effective community engagement and council improvement.  Watch this space…
