Welcome to The Kent Association of Local Councils

                                         

 

The Kent Association is a not for profit membership organisation serving member Parish and Town Councils and Parish Meetings in Kent.  Our membership is currently 305 out of a total of 316.   Membership is open to all Parish and Town Councils and Parish Meetings in Kent for a subscription agreed at the Annual Meeting.

With additional powers and responsibilities being given to Parish and Town Councils following Royal Assent of the Localism Act on 15 November 2011, it is becoming increasingly important that Councillors and Clerks are better informed and are provided with the tools and knowledge to help them undertake their roles as efficiently and effectively as they can.  The Association offers a range of services for our members:


  • A comprehensive Learning and Development Programme for Councillors and Clerks
  • Advice on a wide range of issues, such as Legal (including Employment), Procedural, Financial, Capital Project and Technical.
  • Current Awareness through publications such as Parish News
  • Representation and influence to Government, County and District/Borough Councils, Police and Community Consultative Groups and other organisations.
  • Specialist services through our National Association of Local Councils including Arbitration Service; an Investment Scheme; a Free Banking Scheme; Insurance Packages; Publications; and specialist Computer Software.
