As well as operating a Larger Councils Committee, which voices the policy views and interests of larger councils with an electorate of 6,000 or more, or annual budgeted income of £600k, NALC is developing a raft of other services for this size of council nationally. These services include:

  • A Super Councils' Network for largest member councils with a precept of £1m (or annual turnover of £1.5 million) or more per year
  • A Direct Access Scheme (providing direct access to mainly legal services)
  • Delivery of a one-day bespoke event for larger councils every year

Many larger councils set up youth councils for younger residents and find the resources on the British Youth Council website particularly useful.
