Three leading members of Cheshire East Council have been nominated for national local government awards.
Councillor Michael Jones, Leader of the Council, is in the running for the Leader of the Year prize in the 2015 C'llr Achievement Awards.
Audlem Councillor Rachel Bailey, Cabinet member in charge of safeguarding children and adults, is on the shortlist for the Partnership Achievement of the Year award.
And Councillor Don Stockton, Cabinet member in charge of housing and jobs, is a contender in the Neighbourhood Planner of the Year category.
The C'llr Awards are organised by the Local Government Information Unit, a think tank which publishes C'llr magazine. It is backed by CCLA, a fund manager for charities, faith organisations, and local authorities.
The aim of the awards is to 'honour the hard work of councillors from across the country that often goes unrecognised'.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in March.
