Jonathan Carr-West, Chief Executive, LGIU said: "In the face of unprecedented domestic and global challenges over the last year, councillors nationwide have once again exhibited unwavering dedication to serving their constituents.

The shortlist for the 2023 Cllr Awards represents some of the most devoted elected representatives in England, Wales and Scotland. As councils continue to deliver essential services like social care and housing amid a cost of living crisis, these Awards are a hugely important way to champion what councillors do locally.

Congratulations to all the councillors nominated and shortlisted and I look forward to announcing the winners in November.”
