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.

Delivering Differently in Neighbourhoods

The Department for Communities and Local Government has recently launched Delivering Differently in Neighbourhoods, a new programme which aims to support principal authorities to redesign services to deliver at neighbourhood level, with the involvement of community organisations or parish councils.

The department is offering direct grants to around 25 local authorities in total to kick-start innovative projects in 2014/15 and 2015/16. An expert panel will provide advice and challenge, and there will be opportunities for different projects to exchange learning and network. More »

DCLG are interested in projects that seek to devolve greater responsibility to parish and town councils, and expect that a minimum of 3-4 projects funded in each of the two phases of the programme will involve parish and town councils in some way.

We would encourage parish councils to discuss the programme with their local authorities, who will need to submit expressions of interest to DDneighbourhoods@communities.gsi.gov.uk by 15 December.

For further information about the programme, please see the prospectus. » Less
