Policies & Procedures

Details on the governance and procedures of Parish Councils can be found in the Local Government Act 1972, the Localism Act 2011 (overview) and the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities. A guide for good governance is also provided in the Governance Toolkit for Parish & Town Councils, produced in partnership between the National Association of Local Councils, the Society of Local Council Clerks, Standards for England and the Association of Council Secretaries and Solicitors and is endorsed by the Local Government Association (2009).

Bishops Clyst Parish Council is a member of the Devon Association of Local Councils and the National Association of Local Councils which provide support and training for the Parish Councillors and the Parish Clerk.
