About this booklet

Throughout England parish, town,
community and neighbourhood
councils (local councils)* work towards
improving community well-being
and providing better services at a
local level. They are the tier of local
government below the level of district,
borough or unitary council and are the
tier of local government closest to the
people.

This booklet is for anyone wanting
to know more about parish, town,
community and neighbourhood
councils (local councils), the role of
local councillors and what you need
to do if you would like to stand as a
candidate in local council elections.

We have also provided a range of case
studies which highlight the different
kinds of work that local councils do,
showing that size is no bar to making a
real difference in the local community.
