What is a Parish Council?
The Parish council is government at its most local level. Parish Councillors are elected by local residents for a period of office which is normally four years. Elections for Parish Councillors are held in May at the same time as other local elections for County and/or City Councillors and may also coincide with a general election. Co-options may be considered to fill vacancies which occur during the four year term.
Parish councils are answerable to their local community and to the more senior councils in their areas i.e. at county, city and/or borough level.
