Formed by Parish Councils --- Run for Parish Councils --- Delivering to Parish Councils

Following a decision of the Executive Committee on the 5th March 2018, from the 1st April 2018 the Leicestershire and Rutland Association of Local Councils (LRALC) is a limited company, LRALC Limited. Its work includes representing, training and advising the parish (including town) councils of Leicestershire and Rutland, who form the grass roots tier of local government in England. Put simply, we are our members.

We offer members a resource of vital, operational information and facilitate communication at all levels of the parish network - district, county, regional and national.

As a limited company membership association we are unable to deal with queries from the public, but we are happy to make general information available through this website.

LRALC achieves 100% membership

Thu, 16 Aug 2018 20:34 by Jake Atkinson

Hot on the heels of the final non-member council in Leicestershire rejoining LRALC in April we are pleased to announce that the last non-member in Rutland, Little Casterton Parish Council, resolved to rejoin on Monday 13th August 2018. More »

This means that LRALC now has 100% membership across the two counties it covers, with all 196 councils in membership. Though a handful of County Associations of Local Councils (CALCs) have previously achieved full membership, as far as we are aware we are the only CALC that can currently claim this accolade.

However we are not complacent, and though we are proud of our achievement we know that it is entirely down to the trust and faith that you, our member councils, have in us to represent you and meet your needs as members.

This achievement will drive us to to develop your Association further, and ensure that we continue to meet the high expectations you have for us. » Less

NALC welcomes calls for local government reorganisation in Leicestershire

Fri, 20 Jul 2018 17:02 by admin

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) welcomes calls for local government reorganisation from Nicholas Rushton, leader of Leicestershire County Council who declared that the time had come to explore having new councils. More »

Responding to this announcement, Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of NALC, said: "England's 10,000 local (parish and town) councils are the first tier of local government. Thousands of communities are benefitting from having a local council by giving them a voice and investing £3bn a year in an ever-increasing range of services.

"I welcome the recognition of local councils and their importance in this investigation into the potential for a single principal authority.

"More and more local councils are being established every year and I support moves to strengthen local democracy and bring it much closer to home in non-parish areas such as Loughborough and Coalville.

"Both NALC and the Leicestershire and Rutland Association of Local Councils look forward to having further dialogue on this issue." » Less
