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 £250K.


NALC is developing a raft of other services for this size of council nationally. These services are:

  • A Super Councils' Network for largest councils with a precept of £1m or more per year

  • The Direct Access Scheme (providing direct access to mainly legal services)

  • Delivery of a one-day bespoke event for larger councils at the end of every year


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