Parish and Town Council Records

Parish and Town Council clerks create a wide range of records in order to fulfil the duties of their Councils. Some of these are of long?term historical interest and should be preserved permanently after their administrative usefulness has been served. Many, however, should be disposed of after a number of years. These guidelines have been drawn up in response to regular requests for advice and assistance over the years. They should also serve to help parish and town clerks manage their records, which is a basic element of being able to meet the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The guidelines aim to help clerks to decide which records should be kept and which can be safely destroyed in the parish.

Parkrun - NALC Consultation PC4-17

The DCLG has published a consultation on conserving the free use of public parks. The government is proposing to introduce legislation which would put it beyond doubt that local authorities, including parish councils, cannot charge parkrun or junior parkrun for the use of public parks.

NALC believes that the decision as to whether to levy such charges for use of such recreation facilities should be made by parish councils themselves.

It has asked for members' views which should be submitted to Jessica Lancod-Frost@nalc.gov.uk by 1700 hrs on Wednesday 28th June 2017 .

The government consultation paper itself can be found here: Running free- Government Consultation Paper

Planning Control over Agricultural Land and Buildings LTN-62

The use of land, and of buildings occupied therewith, for agriculture is not development and does not therefore need specific planning permission (section 55(2)(e) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990). 'Agriculture' includes the use of land for allotments (decided in Crowborough Parish Council v Secretary of State for the Environment andWealden DC [1980] 43 P & CR 229).

Planning Partnership: Consultation on the Proposed Changes to the National Planning Policy Framework

The Localism Act 2011 created the opportunity for local communities to develop Neighbourhood Plans, giving consideration to local housing need, land allocation and sustainable development to address long term community need. Having been through a rigorous process including a local referendum, these plans become supplementary planning guidance and carry significant weight in the development process. It provides a bottom up approach to local development and takes account of national planning policy, encouraging developers and communities to work together to provide locally focussed and sustainable developments.

The Partnership is alarmed that the proposed changes to the NPPF not only negate the localism principles but prescribe a system which prevents ocal circumstances from shaping the criteria for development.

Private Access to Council Land LTN-43

Many councils find that properties they own abut the gardens of private residences. Sometimes the owners of these residences wish to have direct access to council land which they facilitate by, for example, putting a gate in their fence. The situation is particularly common when the council land in question is a recreation ground.

Protection of Common Land LTN-53

It is a common misconception that common land is either ownerless or belongs to everyone. In fact, most common land is privately owned (though local councils own a number of commons). LTN-53 advises on the protection of common land.

Protection of Ownerless Common Land LTN-54

Approximately 1,900 commons in England have no known owners. Without any specific measures to protect ownerless land, local authorities would have no power to regulate it and would be unable to intervene if individuals interfered with it.

LTN-54 offers guidance on such.
