Parish, Town & Community Councils

We are experienced at advising parish, town and community councils and have the legal expertise to address the full range of issues faced by such organisations. We recognise the value of parish, town and community councils and the important role they play as the first tier of local government, using their resources to deliver great services to local communities.

We are a registered legal supplier with the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC).

Our expert lawyers understand the details of legislation that applies specifically to parish, town and community councils, as well as other law relevant to council-based transactions. Councils’ actions must be compliant with legal obligations and we can advise on how to ensure transactions are progressed correctly.

With our understanding of parish, town and community councils and the legal issues relevant to them, our specialist lawyers can provide an additional resource to support councils with their regular activities, as well as addressing any concerns or difficulties that arise.

We can also provide training for members and clerks of councils and briefings on matters of interest.
