Honorary Alderman award recommended for former councillor

A former Peterborough city councillor who served her constituents for 17 years has been recommended to receive an Honorary Alderman Award.

Pamela Kreling who represented Park ward between 1997 and 2014 will be recommended for the honour by the chair of the council's Honours Panel, Councillor Peter Hiller.

During her time as councillor, Mrs Kreling served as a member of various committees including Strong & Supportive Scrutiny, Licensing, Audit and Planning.

The recommendation will be made during an extraordinary council meeting at Peterborough Town Hall at 6.30pm Wednesday 14 October 2015. The meeting precedes a full council meeting.

The title was last awarded in 2012 when 12 former councillors received the honour at the same ceremony. Honorary Aldermen receive a badge to recognise their status and can attend and take part in civic ceremonies. 

To be considered for the award you must be a former councillor, who served for a minimum of 11 years continuous service and gained re-election for at least three consecutive terms.

Councillor Peter Hiller, chair of the council's Honours Panel, said: "Pamela dedicated a huge amount of time to the council and the community and I think it is fitting for us to recommend that she receives one of the highest honours we can bestow on a former councillor.

"She was a member of many committees as well as representing the interests of her constituents in Park ward. I believe this award goes some way to recognising the many years of public service that Pamela has given to our city."
