Plymouth City Council recently won local authority of the year for 2020 from the Municipal Journal awards.
This year’s awards were some of the most hotly-contested yet, with the highest ever number of entries recorded from across the country.
The judges said:
“Pride in the city leaps off the pages of Plymouth’s submission. It has taken a novel, consistent and effective approach to putting the city on the map as Britain’s Ocean City”
Tudor Evans, Leader of the Opposition on Plymouth City Council said:
“We all believe fiercely in Plymouth, in its potential and all work phenomenally hard – from the directors to our street sweepers to do our best for the city. It’s great to have this hard work acknowledged”
Plymouth Sutton and Devonport MP Luke Pollard echoed this sentiment:
“This award from the Municipal Journal is a testament to all the hard work done by council workers in their roles making Plymouth a fantastic place to live and work.
This award is especially important as it acknowledges how the previous Labour administration went above and beyond during the difficulties we all experienced in 2020.
We’re all immensely proud of our city, so it’s great to see it recognised by this award.”
