Rackheath Parish Council has recently both achieved getting a Quality Status Award in the Local Council Award Scheme and adoption of the Rackheath Neighbourhood Plan.
Presenting their LCAS Award last week, Phil Harris, NALC Deputy Chairman, congratulated the Parish Council and said, "The Award is evidence of the council's commitment to ongoing improvement and development and good governance and good practice in managing the business and finances of the councils and its service to the community. The Panel were particularly impressed with your high levels of community engagement using a range of media; from a detailed website through to your recent Neighbourhood Plan". Chairman, Emma Whymark responded, "This is a significant achievement for the Parish Council members and the Parish Clerk, who have all worked hard to gain this award. We are particularly pleased with the acknowledgement of our high level of community engagement and we will strive to improve further. The Parish Council now has a firm base of good governance to face the challenges that will affect Rackheath in the future' So well done to Diana and all the RPC team/councillors!
