About Parish Councils

 

Town and Parish Councils are the first tier of Local Government and we operate along side Northants County Council and East Northants Council. Stanwick Parish Council serves the community, residents, tax payers and electors having been elected to represent you.

 

All councils are governed by laws and have powers and duties.
