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.
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.
LRALC Office Closed - Service is OPEN
Please note that as of Monday 23rd March the LRALC office is closed in line with government advice. Please note:
- The phones are diverted to LRALC officer mobile phones so please call us as usual and leave a message if we are closed- we WILL get back to you.
- Use the "ticket" system to place queries and you will usually get a same day response.
- Emails will be checked daily but response times may be slightly longer than for those queries logged using the "ticket" system, especially in the afternoon/evening.
- Check our dedicated coronavirus page each day, this deals with all the main issues councils will be facing and questions they may have (your council has been sent the link a number of times).
- Please pay LRALC invoices promptly and by BACS wherever possible, we need to ensure we can continue providing our service to help councils support their communities at this critical time.
