GALLEYWOOD PARISH COUNCIL RECEIVES AWARD IN NATIONAL SCHEME
Galleywood Parish Council has received a prestigious award as part of the Local Council Award Scheme.  This achievement recognises that the Council achieves good practice in governance, commnity engagement and council improvement.  Moreover, Galleywood Parish Council goes above and beyond their legal obligations, leading their communites and continuously seeking opportuntities to improve and develop further.

The Award Scheme report highlighted the Council's particular areas of strength, including its Standing Orders, Financial Regulations, Code of Conduct and transparent information about council payments.

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 its offer to the local community and welcomes input from local people and partners on this.  Galleywood Parish Council 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.
