Today marks the final chance for local people to nominate councillors who have made a real difference in their communities for a national award.
The Local Government Information Unit (LGIU) and CCLA Investment Management councillor awards is looking to celebrate the achievement of councillors in their communities.
Jonathan Carr-West, Chief Executive of LGIU Scotland, said: “Local government supports all of us, each and every day. On every street, in every town, up and down the country, it is the vital work of councillors that keeps things moving.
“Now is the time for us to support our local heroes by nominating those councillors who have stepped up to the plate during extraordinary circumstances to deliver for their communities.”
This year’s award categories celebrate the essential and varied work of councillors and include the coveted Community Champion, Leader of the Year and New Councillor of the Year awards, alongside a new Resilience and Recovery category for 2021.
Midnight tonight marks the final deadline for local people making their nominations.
Mr Carr-West added: “We welcome contributions from any member of the public as well as other councillors, officers and leaders. We look forward to once again receiving the highest calibre of nominations and showcasing the essential work of councillors in November.”
