Town-centre regeneration, business investment in west Norfolk and brand new university education facilities were among the achievements highlighted at an event to mark the former council leader's nine years of service.
Nick Daubney stepped down as leader of West Norfolk Council earlier this year and an event thanking him for his dedication and commitment to the role was held at the Stories of Lynn museum in King's Lynn.
In his speech, he said: 'We achieved what we achieved because there was a plan, a vision, and a clear strategy.
'Industry picked up on that approach rapidly, and liked that west Norfolk was heading into a forward-thinking direction.'
A message from Baroness Shephard of Northwold, who was unable to attend, was also read to guests.
