More about Parish Councils and the role of the Clerk

  • The Essential Clerk gives a very useful introduction to the role of the Parish Clerk, explaining how Parish Councils work, and the roles and responsibilities of, and relationships between the clerk, the chairman and the councillors. This  link is to the 2007 DEFRA-funded version.
  • If you haven’t worked with a Parish Council before, there are several links on our advice page for prospective councillors, and you will need to know what Parish Councils can do.
