Your Local Council must

What does your council do?
Planning, highways, transport and traffic, community safety, housing, street
lighting, allotments, cemeteries, playing fields, community centers, litter, war
memorials, seats and shelters, rights of way – these are some of the issues
that concern parish government.
Central Government is encouraging local
councils to deliver more services and play a greater part in their communities.
For example your council could provide or give financial support for:
an evening bus taking people to the nearest town
affordable housing to rent
pond clearing
redecorating the community center
a teenagers’ drop-in club
a summer festival
equipment for a children’s activity group
transport to hospital.
Projects like these may be a challenge and need hard work and commitment
– but they are achievable.
