Hindolveston Parish Council is your local authority and is a legal entity in its own right but it is made up of councillors. It does have specific statutory duties and quite a variety of powers. In fulfilling its duties, the Parish Council must work within a legal framework and adhere to a number of directives. These are written by the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) or the Department for Communities and Local Government. In addition, the Parish Council develops its own policies that are approved at Council meetings and are put under version control. For ease of access these are listed below (with hyperlinks to the documents themselves) with the date they were last reviewed/ produced or adopted.
