NALC publishes an updated edition of The Good Councillor's guide


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published an updated edition of The Good Councillor's guide, an essential tool for all councillors, whether new, aspiring, or existing local council members.

The guide is designed to provide practical insights into the workings of local democracy and how councillors can effectively contribute to it. It serves as a stepping stone to becoming a good councillor. Additionally, it directs readers to local county associations, which offer essential training and development opportunities.

The guide is divided into ten comprehensive sections, each covering a crucial aspect of a councillor's role. It is a must-read for new councillors, ensuring they understand their responsibilities, limitations, and the reasons behind them.

With many local (parish and town) councils holding elections this year, there is an excellent opportunity to support new councillors in their roles. NALC offers this guide and several others to member councils on their website for free.
