Honiton Town Council retains ‘Quality’ status
Portfolio assessed by National Association of Local Councils.
Honiton Town Council says it has demonstrated that it continues to be “representative and capable of taking an enhanced role” - by renewing its Quality Council status.
The council’s portfolio was successfully assessed by a panel from the National Association of Local Councils.
Councillor Vernon Whitlock, the mayor, said: “The award of Quality Council status is a recognition that Honiton Town Council is running an effective organisation and serving the community well.
“We are pleased to receive the award.”
A council statement added: “This assurance of quality helps to smooth the way for the formation of partnerships with principal authorities, enabling projects and initiatives which reflect the needs and preferences of the community.”
