Parish Councils are the oldest existing form of elected administration in the UK. They were introduced in 1894 and make up the first tier of local government. There are around 10,000 local councils in England and Wales, made up of nearly 100,000 councillors. Parish Councils deliver a range of services at a community level and their role is to represent local people, provide services to meet local needs and improve quality of life and community well being.
Allington Parish Council has seven elected Councillors keen to serve the needs of all residents in the village. They are, therefore, always pleased to hear your ideas, concerns or suggestions about anything that you believe would benefit the village. Councillors have to stand for re-election every four years. The importance of parish councils is likely to grow as the current coalition government continues to devolve responsibility to local communities. The Parish Council meets on a regular basis in the village hall.
