Parish Councils

Parish Councils 

Parish or Town Councils are the most local level of government in England. They are independent of other levels of local government, i.e. District and County Council, however they maintain a close working relationship with both. 

In addition to the town of Daventry there are 74 parishes of varying character and size in the district, which provide limited local services. By law, every parish must hold an annual meeting consisting of all its electors. Most of the parishes in the Daventry District are large enough to have an elected Parish Council to oversee their affairs, in addition to their electors' meeting.  Altogether there are 53 Parish Councils, 1 Town Council and 20 Parish Meetings in the district.  Parish Councillors serve for a term of four years.   

All Parish Councillors are required to complete a declaration of interest form and the Monitoring Officer is required to maintain a register of these interests; view the Parish Councillors register of interests.
