The Cornwall Association of Local Councils is the County Association affiliated to the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), the only body in the country specialising in the work of Parish and Town Councils and Parish Meetings.

The Association is the first point of contact for member local councils in need of advice on a range of topics, ranging from legal, financial and technical to more general advice. We provide a comprehensive training schedule, with a wide range of specialist courses aimed to equip local councils in their work for the community.

Cornwall ALC Member Councils can access the National Association of Local Councils' members site. This contains legal information and updates for first-tier councils, and the latest policy and parliamentary news and briefings.

Legal Topic Notes are advice and guidance summaries on popular subjects of concern to local councils from NALC. CALC members are provided with a username and password to access the NALC member area. If you need assistance please email
