Parish councils have powers granted through legislation which they can use to represent and support their local communities. Parish councils help to protect their local environment and provide and maintain local services and facilities. Because parish councils are established and regulated by Acts of Parliament they should only make decisions in accordance with the legislation that applies to them.

Policies and procedures provide guidance to councillors and staff to ensure that all council business is conducted in accordance with the powers they have been granted.
