Gloucestershire Association of Parish and Town Councils
Gloucestershire Clerks and Councillors - this is your website.
We are the organisation financed by subscriptions from member councils to support, advise and train them to represent their communities to the best of their abilities. Almost all the parish and town councils and parish meetings in Gloucestershire are members. Our services are for member councils only.
Our specialist field is in town and parish council law and procedures, but we can advise or signpost on a wide range of issues, including employment matters, financial controls, allotments, burial grounds, village greens and risk management.
We also have a role in representing our member councils at national level. We have a direct link to the National Association of Local Councils which lobbies national government on our behalf.

Member parish and town councils have access to the members’ only area
of the website, which includes useful information for clerks and councillors,
employment and finance as well as clearly labelled Legal Topic Notes.
We also provide a service to our member councils by advertising vacancies
for clerks and publicise our regular training courses for clerks and councillors.
Work continues to improve the website to make it a very useful resource for our
