It’s gold for South Hams and West Devon! 

South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council staff are "delighted" to have won a MJ Achievement Award for the "important work being done to make a difference in our communities".

The South Hams and West Devon Senior Leadership Team picking up their MJ Achievement Award

South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council have won the Senior Leadership Team of the Year category, recognising the "dynamic leadership driving forward our ambition to tackle issues facing our residents".

The MJ Achievement Awards celebrate the "success stories in local government and the people behind the good work going on in communities".

A spokesperson for SHDC said: "Both councils work extremely hard to deliver tangible benefits for our residents. In the last year, they have lobbied on second homes policy nationally, secured funding for a new integrated rail and transport hub at Okehampton, and worked hard to meet climate change goals that will help protect Devon in years to come.

"The councils have also worked hard to save people money during the cost of living crisis."

Cllr Julian Brazil, Leader of South Hams District Council, said: “Congratulations to the senior leadership team and the entire Council for this win. It is a fantastic achievement to win, and a true reflection on the work being done across the entire Council.

"Everyone is pulling in the same direction, to make things better for the residents of the South Hams.”
