Bucks County Council has been shortlisted for two national efficiency awards.
The awards are designed to celebrate the work of public service teams right across the country.
Bucks County Council has been nominated in the ‘Council of the Year’ category for outstanding performance in the public sector alongside Oxford and Norwich City councils.
It has also been recognised for its work to deliver the Armed Forces Covenant and it has been shortlisted in the category of ‘Working Together’ alongside Cheshire West and Chester and Oxford City councils.
Bucks County Council leader Martin Tett said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for these two awards.
“With the severe budget pressures, councils are taking tough decisions all the time.
“In Buckinghamshire we pride ourselves on being focused on our residents and delivering good quality, innovative services.
“It is really impressive to receive two nominations from an organisation at the forefront of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of local government nationally.”
The winners will be announced at a ceremony which is taking place in London on Tuesday March 4.
The awards are hosted by The Improvement and Efficiency Social Enterprise (iESE), a not-for-profit social enterprise that helps public bodies throughout the UK deliver improved services at a lower cost.
