This booklet, developed by the National Association of Local Councils in conjunction with the Be A Councillor campaign, highlights the experiences of just a few of the many councillors on local councils and serves to show how rewarding representing your community can be.

Power To The People: What Are Local Councils?

Parish, town, community, neighbourhood and village councils are often referred to as local councils. They are a type of local authority.
Like other types of local authorities, local councils are involved in delivery of services and facilities for the public.
There are over 9,000 local councils in England. A local council enjoys a wide range of statutory powers related to the provision or support of certain services or facilities which generally benefit the residents who live in its area.
Local councils need active, interested and committed people to become councillors and get involved in their work.
This section briefly explains:
• how local councils fit into the structure of local government
• what a local council is
• examples of local council activities
• different sizes, different priorities
• the role of a local councillor
• how local councils make a difference
