Supporting Local Councils in Leicestershire & Rutland

Leicestershire & Rutland Association
of Local Councils

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 Chief Executive

Please remember that any LRALC Member Council can access the National Association of Local Councils' members site. This contains legal information and updates for first-tier councils, and the latest policy and parliamentary news and briefings.

Members' access is via a username and password. Please contact us if you don't already have these details.
