South Norfolk Council has been nominated for two awards.
The council has been shortlisted in two categories of the national LGC Awards – as Entrepreneurial Council of the Year and in the Public / Public Partnership category for its work with the South Norfolk Help Hub.
Council leader John Fuller said. 'This is fantastic news.
'Being nominated in the Entrepreneurial Council of the Year category underlines the efforts that the council is making to promote economic growth in the district and our understanding of the need to deliver infrastructure alongside housing, while finding new, efficient ways to deliver the services that our residents need.
'The recognition of our work with the Help Hub shows our determination to make sure that no one gets left behind. The Help Hub offers a single point of access to 15 agencies, all working together to provide the help that our vulnerable residents need at the time they need it.'
The awards, run by the Local Government Chronicle, is the biggest award ceremony for the local government sector and recognise the best of local government innovation and service delivery.
The partnership work of the Help Hub has also been recognised in a report, following an inspection of Norfolk Constabulary by HMIC.
