Over the last couple of years the town council has undertaken a rigorous review of its policies, governance arrangements, financial systems and community engagement work. As a result of this we are delighted to have been accredited with the Foundation Level of the national Local Council Award Scheme. Councillor Mel Carr, Chair of the town council, was recently presented with the award by Mr Dennis Coates, National Association of Local Council’s Local Accreditation Panel Chairman. Councillor Carr said “This is a great achievement by Sedgefield Town Council and recognises that we achieve good practice. The council is committed to further improvement and we look forward to one day achieving even greater success in this scheme”. Further information about the Local Council Award Scheme can be found here.
Sedgefield Town Councillors were delighted to elect Councillor David Brown as Mayor of Sedgefield for 2017/18. Councillor Brown, pictured below with his wife Elizabeth, has been a long-standing member of the town council. More information regarding the Mayor’s chosen charities and events in 2017/18 will be posted on the Mayor’s page of this website and in our September edition of the Sedgefield Extra.
