Get involved with your local Council!

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has released a new video – see above! – starring our very own viral sensation, Jackie Weaver, to help get more people involved in local (parish and town) councils. The video, shot in rural Yorkshire, raises the importance of everyone having a stake in their community and getting involved in their local council.

Civility and Respect Project

NALC, county associations and One Voice Wales, as the membership organisations representing the first tier of local government in England and Wales, and the SLCC, as the professional body for clerks, are committed to working together to promote civility and respect in public life, good governance, positive debate and supporting the well-being of councillors, professional officers and staff.

ChALC has written to fourteen MP's whose constituencies fall within the area the Association covers, asking for their help in addressing concerns about the bullying, harassment and intimidation of local town and parish councillors and their staff, and requesting that they add their signatures to an Early Day Motion on the conduct of councillors towards town and parish council clerks, see EDM 691 for further information.
