Parish and town councils are executive bodies with statutory powers and duties. Each is expected, and often asked, to voice the views of the community that they represent on planning applications, local plans and other issues. They also nominate members to represent the view of the parish on outside bodies and, in turn, report back on the business of the body concerned.
They are frequently expected to lead on projects that will benefit the local community because it is often the only body with access to information and with the resources to take an initiative.
Parish and town council councillors are required to sign up to a code of conduct and, in doing so, pledge to observe the requirements contained within it.
