FOI Request - Civic Honours
Please provide me with a list of individuals, groups of people and/or bodies, who have been awarded the freedom of your council area, or any similar award or designation.
By similar award or designation, I mean an honorary civic award bestowed by the council on an individual, company, group or military unit with the intent of recognising their contribution to the local area. This would exclude formal civic offices eg Mayor. I am interested in receiving the information for any period for which you hold the records.
There have been 4 Freedom of Moray's awarded since 2000:
Gordon Baxter (Local businessman) - 2008 Heather Stanning (Olympian) - 2016 Grenville Johnston (Retired Lord Lieutenant of Moray) - 2019 One other recipient was agreed following a confidential report at a meeting of Moray Council on 2 February 2023, however the recipient has not yet been disclosed as the presentation has not yet taken place.
