What is a Parish Council, how does it work, and how does it help me?

The council is a body corporate formed to represent the interests of the community it serves. It is the council which is deemed responsible for its actions, not councillors as individuals, however, councillors are bound by the Code of Conduct by which it members, should abide.

Town and Parish Councils are the closest level of democratic government to the community they represent. They are statutory bodies and subject to statutory requirements; they only have the powers or functions vested in them by Acts of Parliament.

Role - Overview

Parish and Town Councils raise their money from the local community through the Council Precept and this is used to improve facilities and services for the community. Town and Parish Councils also have access to grants for local projects not available to other levels of local councils, such as District and County Councils.
