Parish & Town Councils

Leicestershire County Council (LCC) work in partnership with the Leicestershire & Rutland Association of Local Councils (LRALC) to support Parish & Town Councils in Leicestershire.

LCC hold quarterly operational meetings for Parish & Town Council Clerks, which includes an annual liaison event. The meetings provide an opportunity to share information on upcoming initiatives, to respond to queries and concerns held by Parish Clerks, and to consider joint working opportunities to shape future support and services for our Communities.

Our upcoming meetings will be held via video link, and will be held more frequently until we are able to meet again in person.

Dates of our upcoming meetings can be found below. Please do get in touch if you have any items for future meetings - communitiesteam@leics.gov.uk
