Here you can find information about how each tier of government works and, in particular, the relative services and responsibilities of parish, district and county councils. There is an explanation of the local electoral boundaries (which parish falls within which district ward and which county division) so that you can work out which councillors represent you. Links are provided to help you contact local government officers, councillors and MPs.
