The Council has enacted its business continuity plans and is redeploying staff to priority services. Please check our Coronavirus updates page for the latest information about Council services.

Community Rights

The Localism Act has introduced legislation giving new rights to communities and individuals who want to help shape their communities and run local services. The Localism Act 2011 is available to read on the Government Legislation website. 

You can find more information on the My Community Rights website. The Government has also introduced a plain English guide to the Localism Act.

The Council has produced its own 'Localism Prospectus' which outlines our approach to localism as an 'enabling' council.
