GOOD practice by Yate Town Council has led to it being recognised with a national accolade.
It was named council of the week by the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), which highlights the achievements of town and parish councils in England which belong to the organisation.
The council’s geographical area of responsibility includes more than 22,000 residents, who are represented by 17 elected councillors.
Its entry for the award focused on its progressive outlook and the way it led the development of local projects and organised numerous community events.  
Its recent takeover of the Yate Outdoor Sports Complex site and the purchase of land at Abbotswood Shopping Centre were given as examples of investment in improving the local environment.
