During 2011, the Council started preparing its Quality Portfolio for submission in July 2012. The Quality Portfolio takes 12 months to complete and comprises evidence of various types of communication against a set criteria e.g.-copies of 12 months meeting agendas, minutes, press cuttings, magazine articles.

Chairman of the Council Cllr Jeanette Cleaver said ' As part of the re- accreditation process, the Council was required to demonstrate the promotion of local democracy & citizenship, accountability and evidence of Councillor training'.

The Parish Council submitted a very large portfolio in July 2012. In September, the Council were advised by the Quality Panel that it has successfully been re accredited with Quality status for a further 4 years.

The Quality Panel quoted in their report, 'The Accreditation application runs into three folders and bearing in mind the village only has a population of circa 3000, shows how well the Council uphold their duties and are well looked after by an excellent Clerk'.

The Quality Panel will be presenting Little Paxton Parish Council with a Re-Accreditation Certificate within the next few weeks.

Council changes increases efficiencies

Little Paxton Parish Council is looking for new members to join the small dedicated team of Parish Councillors.

The Council has in the past month changed its meeting structure and abolished its Planning, Amenities & Finance Committees. All decisions previously made by these Committees will now be made by the Full Council. The Full Council will now meet twice a month (except August, where only one meeting will be held).

Cllr J. Cleaver, Chairman of the Council said 'It is anticipated that the changes will further improve the Council's efficiency as a result of fortnightly Full Council meetings instead of monthly ones. Matters may be placed on the Agenda, decisions made and acted upon more frequently. Full Council meetings should finish earlier as the Agendas will be shorter.'

If you've got a few hours to spare each week - and an interest in the future of the village - we'd like to hear from you.

Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said, 'Little Paxton Parish Council is very proactive. The role of a Councillor is a rewarding one and the Council has a high profile in the village. There are day/or evening training courses available for all new Councillors.'
