THURROCK Council in the running for Local Authority of the Year for second year in a row

Thurrock Council has been shortlisted as one of just six finalists for Local Authority of the Year in The Municipal Journal (MJ) Local Government Achievement Awards 2020. It is the second year in a row the council has been shortlisted for this prestigious award.

Leader of Thurrock Council, Cllr Rob Gledhill, said: “Being shortlisted two years in a row for such a prestigious award is an extremely significant achievement and shows that we are going above and beyond in serving the borough and its residents and businesses.

“We are an innovative and forward looking local authority who puts our residents first. Being named as a finalist two years in a row shows that we are truly leaders in our field. I am extremely proud of all those who work hard at, or with, the council to achieve this nomination. It is a testament to their dedication and commitment.”

In shortlisting Thurrock Council the MJ says: “Thurrock Council is a previous ­finalist and has consistently demonstrated its ability to adapt, prosper and grasp socioeconomic opportunities. Its leadership of the place agenda is impressive and the council unapologetically aspires to delivering for both businesses and residents.”

The winner will be announced at an online ceremony set to take place in October.
