Working with Political Councils

Course Description 

Do you have councillors who are overtly members of a political party?

Does your council have political groups?

This discussion session looks at the pros and cons of party politics in councils, what the provisions are for politics at town and parish level in local government law and procedures, and how as clerk you should manage the dynamics and tensions between political groups.

A seasoned clerk will share their wisdom, but this is mainly a discussion session, so it is about sharing experiences – good and bad – and learning from each other.

This is an interactive course  and offers the opportunity to network with Clerks from Councils across Northamptonshire to share best practice and ideas.
