Empowering Parish and Town Councils in Northamptonshire

A Warm Welcome

To all those new to the parish sector, congratulations on your election and welcome to the wonderful world of local government.

You are a publicly elected official whose role is to represent the people of the parish. Your job is to do brilliant things on behalf of your community.

You will find it exhilarating at times and frustrating at times. You will find the rules and regulations complex and strange at first and your learning curve will be steep. But you have the chance to put something back into your community, to influence the decisions made about your area and to help shape the place where you live.

If you are eager to learn about your role the starting point is the Good Councillor's Guide. Once you have read that we hope to see you soon on one of our Off to a Flying Start courses.

Northants CALC is here to help you all the way but don't forget to ask your clerk for help and guidance in the first instance.
