LCAS Quality GOLD Status
In June 2022, Dursley Town Council were re-awarded the Local Council Award Scheme 'Quality Gold' and will hols this accreditation for the next four years.
Having originally been awarded in April 2017 the Local Council Award Scheme 'Quality Gold', Dursley Town Council were the first Council in Stroud District and the second council in Gloucestershire to achieve this award. We have built on our previous Quality award obtained in September 2016.
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.
Alison Robinson said "The Local Council Award Scheme promotes quality practice in local councils. The scheme has three levels, 'Foundation' (minimum standards), 'Quality' (Good practice) and 'Quality Gold (Best practice). Dursley Town Council has worked to submit their 'Gold' application, which demonstrates a clear commitment to the Dursley community that they provide a quality service and quality vision for local people".
One panel member described the Town Council as 'the perfect example of what a Gold quality council should be.
Mayor Grecian was presented the "Quality Gold" award from Alison Robinson, Chief Executive of the Gloucestershire Association of Parish & Town Councils at the Town Council's Annual meeting on the 9th May 2017.
