Their awards receive hundreds of submissions every year and the outstanding councils that have met the stringent criteria of the judges have been shortlisted for Council of the Year.
In addition to Eastleigh, eight other local authorities have been shortlisted. They are: Conwy County Borough Council, Durham County Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Reading Borough Council, Swansea Council, Telford & Wrekin Council, Wakefield Council and Wigan Council
A number of individual Council teams and initiatives have also been shortlisted for this year’s Service Awards 2022 – and the Council’s StreetScene and other teams have been recognised for multiple APSE awards in recent years.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Swansea in September.
