Your Council

The operation of rural and parish councils in England and Wales came about as a result of the Local Government Act 1894.  Parish Councils are an essential part of the fabric of local democracy and play a key role in town and villages. They operate as non-political bodies serving the community by dealing with local issues and working closely with the borough councils to keep them in touch with the needs of the people from smaller communities.

The Anlaby with Anlaby Common Parish Council has a wide range of powers including planning advisory body, street lighting and street furniture.

Please contact the Parish Clerk if you would like more information about the council.
