Local Council Award Scheme - Success

Local Council Award Scheme - Success

Painswick Parish Council has been awarded Local Council Award Scheme 'Quality Gold' (the top rating for local councils).

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. Quality Gold councils provide leadership for their communities, bring people together, have excellent business planning processes, ensuring value for money as well as constantly seeking new innovations and opportunities to improve. They highlight the very best we, as a sector, can achieve for our communities.

On Friday 20th October 2017, we were visited by an assessment panel including Cllr Stephen Hirst (Tetbury Mayor & Chair of Gloucestershire Association of Parish & Town Council), Alison Robinson (CEO – GAPTC), and John Kay (Dursley Town Council – Clerk).

The panel met a number of the Parish Councillors, visiting a number of community led projects including the Library, Tourist Information Office and Toddler Group. The Panel were extremely impressed with the amount of community engagement and the Councils imaginative use of our buildings /assets.

Councillors and staff have worked hard over a number of years on projects for the benefit of Painswick, Edge, Sheepscombe and Slad. The Chairman Cllr Martin Slinger stated "It was excellent to have this acknowledged by the Award".
