Ashfield District Council has scooped the Quality Improvement Award 2013 at the nationally renowned Keep Britain Tidy Awards.  This recognises the efforts the Council has made in reviewing its environmental services, making them more efficient, while at the same time improving service quality and seeing a significant increase in customer satisfaction levels and resident compliments.

Cllr. Andrew Davidson, Portfolio Holder for Environment, Public Health and Community Protection said he was delighted that the Council’s innovative approach to service delivery had been recognised at such a prestigious level: “I am really pleased to see Ashfield District Council being praised for a bold and original way of achieving financial savings while at the same time increasing customer satisfaction levels.  I personally congratulate everyone involved in this review and those who deliver the service to Ashfield residents on a daily basis.”

Congratulating the Council on its success, Phil Barton, Chief Executive of the Keep Britain Tidy Network, commented: “Doing things in a different way can pay off for both the council and its residents and Ashfield’s success is proof of this.”

The work of the Keep Britain Tidy Network was also the subject of last night’s (Monday 28th October) BBC1 Panorama programme, where Joan Bakewell examined the work of the Keep Britain Tidy Network including some clips from the award ceremony attended by the Ashfield District Council team.
