What we do

There are three levels of local government in this area, County Council, District Council and Town Council. Each of these councils has different responsibilities, so it is useful to approach the right council if you have a query. Sometimes responsibilities overlap; if you are unsure then contact the Clerk, or the District or County Council Offices.
