Formed by Parish Councils --- Run for Parish Councils --- Delivering to Parish Councils

The Derbyshire Association of Local Councils (DALC) is a not for profit membership organisation, representing, training and advising the parish (including town) councils of Derbyshire, who form the grass roots tier of local government in England.

We offer members a resource of vital, operational information and facilitate communication at all levels of the parish network - district, county, regional and national.

As a membership association we are unable to deal with queries from the public, but we are happy to make general information available through this website. Please do not contact us directly unless you are a member.

Elections 2015

NOTE!! Thursday 9 April 4pm is the deadline for the delivery of nomination papers to your district/borough council. Some authorities have sent paper copies of nomination forms to town and parish councils, others will be directing your councillors and anyone interested in standing for office to an online link to download the necessary forms. Please be aware of the process your own district or borough is taking and ensure your candidates are aware of what they need to do. With the Easter break over the weekend of 4 April and some councils not meeting again until after Easter it might be too late to deal with nomination form filling and delivery back to the district/borough council at that time.
