What can Town Councils do?

There are over 10, 000 parish councils (some of which are called town, community or neighbourhood councils) representing around 16 million people across England. They form the most local level of government and cover many rural and urban areas. Northamptonshire has 218 parishes with councils, plus 51 parish meetings (which do not hold elections). Together they cover almost all of the county, with the exception of unparished areas in Kettering and Corby.

Your town council has an overall responsibility for the well-being of your local neighbourhood. Their work falls into three main categories:

  • representing your local community
  • delivering services to meet local needs
  • striving to improve quality of life in the parish

Your town council might provide, maintain or contribute to the following services:

  • allotments
  • litter bins
  • bus shelters
  • local illuminations
  • car parks
  • local youth projects
  • community centres
  • parks and open spaces
  • community safety schemes
  • planning
  • community transport schemes
  • public lavatories
  • crime reduction measures
  • street cleaning
  • cycle paths
  • street lighting
  • festivals and celebrations
  • tourism activities
  • leisure facilities
  • traffic calming measures

They will often work with larger councils (district, borough, county or unitary) in your area called 'principal authorities' and cooperate to ensure the effective delivery of services to the local community.
