Chichester City Council is very pleased to announce that Councillor Richard Plowman has been named as a finalist in the prestigious National Association of Local Councils’ (NALC) Star Council Awards, 2021.
Councillor Plowman has been selected as a finalist in the 2021 Councillor of the Year category.
NALC’s Star Council Awards are the only awards in England to recognise and celebrate the contribution local (parish and town) councils make to their communities.
The awards are a fantastic opportunity for local councils, councillors, clerks and county associations to showcase how they have made a real difference locally.
The theme of this year’s awards focused on projects that have positively impacted communities in the context of Covid-19.
The winners will be announced at an online ceremony in October.
On receiving the news, Councillor Plowman said:
“To be selected as one of only 5 Finalists from the 100,000 parish and town councillors represented by NALC is an honour and very humbling. It is the equivalent of getting a nomination for an Oscar or a medal in the Olympic games in the Local authority world! However, what is most important it nationally recognises Chichester City Council and the people of Chichester for how they stepped up during the Pandemic to meet the challenge.”
