The Different Role Of Town (or Parish) Councillor ***NEW***

Mon, 13 Sep 2021 19:00

Course description:
There are key legal and practical differences between being a member of a principal council and being a member of a local council. Much of the legal framework for the corporate body is the same, but the role of members is very different. This course will outline the key differences, point out the main pitfalls to avoid, and help councillors be most effective in their role on the town or parish council. There will also be plenty of opportunity for questions and interaction.

Who should attend
This course is aimed at members of town and parish councillors who are, or who used to be, members of a principal council (borough, district, county, unitary).
