NALC Local Council Award Scheme
This scheme was created in 2014 and is
managed on behalf of local councils by the Improvement and Development Board (IDB).
Awards are provided at three levels:
A council will pass a resolution as part of their meeting in order to apply to join the scheme at the correct level.
For each level a Council is required to meet certain criteria. When a Council feels that it meets the criteria for the level towards which it is working, the clerk will notify the accreditation panel for a peer review to take place.
Full details of the scheme may be found in the guide (see link to right) published by NALC on behalf of the Improvement and Development Board.
Keresley Parish Council Meeting has passed a resolution to work towards achieving the Foundation Award level of the scheme.
The Council currently working on the improvements needed to demonstrate that the requirements for operating lawfully and according to standard practice are met.
Part of these improvements has been the updating of the Parish Council Website to comply with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level AAA (as detailed in the Keresley Parish Council Accessibility Statement).
Another requirement is to provide evidence that the Parish Council is actively involved in town and country planning matters, this is demonstrated by the actions of the Planning Sub-Committee.
Transparency in Parish Council finances, another requirement, is shown in the Finance pages.
