NALC’s Star Councils 2018 celebrates the positive impact local councils, councillors, county associations and clerks make to their communities, recognising the achievements of the local council sector. We encourage everyone who has gone above and beyond to make a positive, local change to put themselves forward.
A positive, proactive and responsive planning system focused on shaping places is vital for the future growth of our society. Where it works well, it is one of the best tools that we have to deliver the homes and jobs where they are needed, in our villages, towns and cities.
