The chairman of the Essex Association of Local Councils has presented Waltham Abbey Town Council with its Quality Gold Status award.

The presentation, to Mayor Jeane Lea and Town Clerk Kathryn Richmond, was made before tonight's (Wednesday) Annual Council Meeting.

Waltham Abbey Town Council, which was one of the first authorities to receive Gold accreditation some four years ago, has now been re-accredited as a 'Quality Gold Status' council as part of the Local Council Awards Scheme run by the National Association of Local Councils.

Cllr Peter Davey, who is also the Essex Accreditation Panel chairman, said 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 and has excellent business planning processes, ensuring value for money as well as constantly seeking new innovations and opportunities to improve".

Highlighting the council's recent achievements, Cllr Davey said: "Important projects have been achieved because of teamwork throughout the organisation with forward planning and using assets efficiently.

"All projects have been for the benefit of the community, such as the outdoor gym equipment and new changing rooms at Larsens recreation ground achieved by a successful grant application of £20,000 from Essex County Council's Community Initiatives Fund."

He added that the Accreditation Panel had shown "no hesitation" in recommending the Gold re-accreditation.

Waltham Abbey Town Council clerk Kathryn Richmond said: "We are delighted to have achieved this prestigious award once again. To be awarded Quality Gold status by our peers is a major achievement by the council, both the members and staff working together. 

"The scheme, run by the National Association of Local Councils and administered by the Essex Association of Local Councils, offers councils the opportunity to show that they meet the standards set by the sector, in governance, finance and community.  

"The award means even more to councils as it is assessed by their peers."
