Your Town Council has been received the prestigious Quality Award as part of the Local Council Award Scheme. This achievement recognises that the council achieves good practice in governance, community engagement and council improvement. Moreover, the Council goes above and beyond their legal obligations, leading their communities and continuously seeking opportunities to improve and develop even further.
The Local Council Award Scheme is assessed by independent experts and is designed to promote and recognise Councils that are at the cutting edge of the sector. It is through the sector working together to share best practice, drive up standards and supporting those who are committed to improving their offer to their communities that individual councils and the sector as a whole will reach its full potential.
The Mayor of Dover, Councillor Neil Rix is delighted, “The Quality Award recognises what the Town Council has achieved for the people of Dover and is a boost and encouragement for us going forward to do even more”
In terms of the future, the council is continuing to seek ways in which it can keep on improving its offer to the local community and welcomes input from local people and partners on this. Dover and other local councils like it, are at the front line of the government’s localism agenda and are doing as much as they can to deliver services whilst being efficient and cost-effective.
