    Empowering councils to help make towns and villages better places to live

Northamptonshire County Association of Local Councils is a not for profit membership organisation, representing, training and advising the parish and town councils of Northamptonshire, who form the grass roots tier of local government in England.

We offer members a resource of vital, operational information and facilitate communication at all levels of the parish network - district, county, regional and national.

As a membership association we are unable to deal with queries from the public, but we are happy to make general information available through this website.

Interested parties and organisations are invited to submit written evidence to the Committee by 8 September 2017 so the National Association of Local Councils would like to hear your views by 1 September 2017 to inform its response on behalf of the sector.
