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.

- Robin Hood Energy in Nottingham: the first council-owned energy company
