The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published a quarterly report highlighting its activity within the sector.

Every quarter, NALC provides its National Assembly and Management Board with a report. It sets out what it has done in partnership with county associations on behalf of England's 10,000 local (parish and town) councils to help them build stronger communities.

Results presented to a Management Board meeting on 10 September 2019 included:

  • Meetings with ministers on sector issues
  • Lobbying on exempting toilets from business rates
  • Facilitating the groundbreaking first Peer Review at Chippenham Town Council
  • Highlighting the potential of the sector to principal authorities at the LGA Conference
  • Research on the local elections earlier this year
  • Publishing new Model Financial Regulations
  • Dealing with over 200 legal enquiries
