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, salaries, planning principles, rights of way, allotments, elections, FoI, data protection, and much more.

These are all uploaded to this website for free access.

Local Councils Update was published published monthly from January 2010 to April 2024 and concisely covered 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.

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