The role of town and parish councils

Town and parish councils have a range of responsibilities including:

  • representing the local community-s interests, for example, by commenting on planning applications
  • supporting local organisations and activities, for example with grants
  • providing amenities, such as allotments, burial grounds, bus shelters and public seats
  • looking after green spaces and footpaths.

Please contact your local town or parish council for more information on their role, meetings and local issues. You can use our postcode search to find out which parish you live in.
