Voting closes soon for the Local Public Ownership Awards

Voting closes soon for the Local Public Ownership Awards

Launched in August, the Local Public Ownership Awards showcases some of the best and most inspiring council-run services in the UK.

From recycling in Aberdeen to social work in Buckinghamshire, councils across the UK are taking public services back into public control. What’s more, they’re making a huge success of it.

LocalGov has partnered with We Own It to celebrate the hard work of these councils, and we need your help to choose a winner.

Voting is closing soon, so make sure you get your votes in before the deadline. The deadline for voting is midnight on Sunday 8th October 2017.

The shortlist includes:

  • Robin Hood Energy in Nottingham: the first council-owned energy company
  • Bringing social workers in-house in Buckinghamshire
  • Sevenoaks District Council: Platinum quality public services
  • Going green on waste in Liverpool
  • Reading Buses – getting greener and putting passengers first

  • Bristol Energy: local community and renewable energy
  • Aberdeen City Council: Recycling where it matters
  • Flood crisis in Cumbria: public ownership saves the day
  • Slough sets up its own waste company
