Sandy Town Council has received an award as part of the Local Council Award Scheme which recognises good practice in governance, community engagement and council improvement.

A spokesman for the council said: “Sandy Town Council continuously seeks opportunities to improve and develop even further.

“The Local Council Award Scheme is a peer assessed programme that has been designed to both provide 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 through the sector working together to share best practice, drive up standards and supporting those who are committed to improving their communities that individual councils and the sector as a whole will reach its full potential.

“In terms of the future, the council is now reviewing ways in which it can keep on improving what it offers to the local community and welcomes input from local people and partners on this. Sandy 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.”
