Mid Devon District Council Recognised in Parliamentary Review
Each year the Parliamentary Review aims to showcase the best of business, journalism and politics in its prestigious publication. This month we are proud that the work of Mid Devon District Council has been recognised in its feature on best practice.
The Parliamentary Review is a multi-edition publication that combines political commentary from leading journalists, with insight from Secretaries of State, Ministers and MPs. It is regarded as a guide to industry best practice and demonstrates how sector leaders have responded to challenges in the political and economic environment.
Featuring in the magazine for the first time showcases the success Mid Devon has achieved over the past few years, as well as highlighting its ambition for further growth and its desire to embark of projects that are recognised at a national level.
Mid Devon Chief Executive, Stephen Walford, said:
"We may be a small council in terms of population but the strength of our desire to improve the district for those who live, work and visit here is huge. We are proud of this ambition and relish the chance to share our success story with others. We are delighted to be involved in this year's Parliamentary Review and we hope our story is read widely. I am so proud of the team here at Mid Devon and I know we have plenty more to come in the near future.”
Cllr Bob Deed, Leader of the Council, added:
“As Leader I know our members and officers are continually working hard to improve our district but sometimes our successes can get lost in politics or the day-to-day running of the organisation. This is why recognition of our work, especially at such a level, is always so welcome. Not only is it satisfying to read about our achievements but it makes us all stop for a moment and take stock of the accomplishments we have achieved here at Mid Devon.”
This year's edition of The Parliamentary Review is said to be indispensable for anyone who seeks to make a name for themselves in industry, as well as highlights some significant developments and concerns for business leaders up and down the country.
Following Mid Devon’s article the joint chairmen of the Parliamentary Review, Lord Pickles and Lord Blunkett, said: “The ability to listen and learn from one another has always been vital in parliament, in business and in most aspects of daily life. But at this particular moment in time, as national and global events continue to reiterate, it is uncommonly crucial that we forge new channels of communication and reinforce existing ones. The following article from Mid Devon District Council is an attempt to do just that.”
