Welcome to OALC

The Oxfordshire Association of Local Councils is part of a national network and has been representing Town & Parish Councils, and Parish Meetings for over seventy years. We provide advice and information for them, and training for councillors and clerks. We represent local council interests through partnerships with other local and regional agencies in the public, private and voluntary sectors. 


What are Local Councils?

Parish and Town Councils, often known simply as "local councils", exist in many English parishes. They vary from councils based on a small village, to ones serving large urban areas with tens of thousands of residents. They are recognised nationally as the level of local government closest to people.
