A spokeswoman said: “The shortlisted councils are doing things that other councils around the country may want to learn from.”

Other contenders include Derby, Durham, Oldham, Staffordshire and Wakefield, and the winner will be announced at a ceremony at Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane on March 12.
