At the Annual Town meeting Councillor Ian Moncur ended his Chairman’s report by announcing that the Town Council had been awarded Quality Gold status as part of the new Parish and Town Councils’ National Quality Council Award Scheme.
The Local Council Award Scheme is designed to celebrate the successes of the very best local councils, and to provide a framework to support all local councils to improve and develop to meet their full potential. The 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 Award Scheme provides the tools and encouragement to those councils at the beginning of their improvement journeys, as well as promoting and recognising councils that are at the cutting edge of the sector. It is only 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 Quality Gold Award demonstrates that a council is at the forefront of best practice by achieving excellence in community governance, community leadership and performance management.
On receiving the award presented by Helen Ollett-Nash of the National Association of Local Councils, Mr Moncur said “It gives me great pleasure to accept this award on behalf of the Town Council. We are the first to achieve this prestigious award in Norfolk and one of only seventeen Councils to achieve it nationally”.
Mr K Leggett, Chairman of Broadland District Council congratulated the Town Council on their achievement and hoped that other Town and Parish Council’s in the Broadland area would follow Sprowston’s lead in attaining Quality Gold.
