Dou­ble award for coun­cil’s arm’s-length com­pany

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

A COUN­CIL com­pany has snapped up its sec­ond award in a month.

Civi­cance – Cheshire East Coun­cil’s whol­ly­owned build­ing reg­u­la­tion, plan­ning and land charges com­pany – re­ceived a sil­ver award recog­nis­ing the in­no­va­tive ap­proach to re­mod­elling lo­cal ser­vices.

The award was pre­sented at the eighth an­nual awards event held by the or­gan­i­sa­tion Im­prove­ment and Ef­fi­ciency So­cial En­ter­prise (iESE). It recog­nises how Civi­cance has helped to re­duce costs for the coun­cil tax­payer by re­mod­elling coun­cil ser­vices through an arm’s-length com­pany, gen­er­at­ing in­come and cre­at­ing sus­tain­abil­ity go­ing for­ward.

Ian Bunn, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, said: “This award demon­strates the com­mit­ment of and con­tri­bu­tion made by all Civi­cance em­ploy­ees, who have ex­pe­ri­enced sig­nif­i­cant changes to their work­ing prac­tices in or­der to im­prove ser­vices to lo­cal res­i­dents.

“The award recog­nises their achieve­ments within a rel­a­tively short pe­riod of time and con­grat­u­la­tions go to each and ev­ery mem­ber of staff we em­ploy.”

Last month, Civi­cance achieved suc­cess at the Land Data Awards, col­lect­ing the ‘Best Cus­tomer Ex­pe­ri­ence’ award for its ser­vices to so­lic­i­tors and home buy­ers.
