Legal Matters

Legal Matters appear in every issue of Clerks and Councils Direct dealing with subjects that matter and affect councils most, and are written by experts in the relevant topics.

Examples are the role of councillors, planning principles, rights of way, allotments, elections, FoI, data protection, and much more.

All past articles from January 2010 are available to subscribers of the Local Councils Update online service on this website.

Local Councils Update deals concisely with the legal, parliamentary, consultation papers, financial and accounting matters, powers and remit, health and safety, expenses, salaries, liabilities, planning, borrowing, and other legislative matters that are within the remit of the Town, Parish and Community Councils of England and Wales.

It is published monthly and available as a hard copy and electronically on this website.

All past editions are available to view, search and print out.

Paul Clayden was our legal matters author for many years. He sadly passed away suddenly in 2020; you can see his obituary here.
