A parish council in Lichfield has been praised for its “social conscience and commitment to the environment”.
Whittington and Fisherwick Parish Council was recently named authority of the week by the National Association of Local Councils (NALC).
The authority was praised for its active presence in the local community.
“It is clearly a council with a social conscience and a commitment to its people and environment,” a NALC spokesperson said.
“To ensure residents are involved in local developments, the council has produced a Parish Plan and is now in the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan.
“It recently facilitated a meeting where residents could talk to the developers that have expressed an interest on working on local housing developments.”
