Town or parish council

Get in touch with your local parish or town council and talk to them about what you want to do. They are the most ‘local’ level of local government and their role is about:

  • Representing their local community
  • Delivering services to meet local needs
  • Working to improve quality of life in a parish or town.

Parish and town councils cover services such as allotments, bus shelters, village halls, playgrounds and parks, seats, signs and notice boards, and they have input into the planning process in their area and any local plans.

Most parish or town councils have their own website with information on meetings, activities and contacts. You can also contact the Devon Association of Local Councils.
