About Us

The Kent Association is a not for profit membership organisation serving member Parish and Town Councils and Parish Meetings (Local Councils) in Kent and Medway. Our membership is currently 303 out of a total of 316. Membership is open to all Local Councils in Kent and Medway for a subscription agreed at the Annual Meeting. As the first tier of local government closest to their communities, Local Councils have a key role to play in shaping their localities with the Government's drive to devolve power and decision making to local people through the Localism Act 2011, the Cities and Local Government Devolution Act 2016 and changes in the Audit Framework, 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.
