Parish and Town Councils

There are 54 Parish and Town Councils in Richmondshire.

A Parish/Town Council acts as the voice of its local community, passing parishioners' opinions and views on to high levels of government and other bodies. Its powers are defined and granted by acts of Parliament.

Elections to Parish and Town Councils are held every four years.

Parish and Town Councils are an essential part of the structure of local democracy and have a vital role in acting on behalf of the communities they represent.

The table below lists the Parish and Town Councils in Richmondshires and gives the contact details for the Clerk.  In addition there are 26 Parish Meetings within Richmondshire and again these are listed below.   For more information, if available please click on the relevant Parish/Town Council or Parish Meeting name.

Parish and Town Clerks can use the following link to submit minutes and other documents for publication on this site - Parish and Town Council Document Submit.

Useful documents for Parish Councils can be found below:
