NALC Legal Topic Notes: Models / Procedures


Parish, town and community councils often wish to celebrate some national event (e.g. Royal Jubilee) or a local event (e.g. anniversary of the council). The celebration may be marked by a single event (such as a street party) or by a permanent object (such plaque or sign) or a combination. This advice is of general application in respect of the powers of local councils to organise celebratory events or objects and to incur expenditure for that purpose. This Legal Topic Note sets out the relevant statutory and other legal provisions.
