Yarnscombe Parish Council (“the Council”) has enrolled in the National Association of Local Councils award scheme because it is keen to demonstrate that it has the documentation and information in place for operating lawfully and according to standard practice. It is now developing additional documentation and information for good governance, effective community engagement and council improvement.

The first phase of this project was completed in October 2017 with the achievement of the Foundation Level award. The Council is now working towards the Quality Level award, which it hopes to achieve by October 2021. The ways in which the criteria for each of these levels are satisfied can be seen by clicking either of the links below.
