Parish Council Responsibilities - it can be confusing to know which council is responsible for what services in the village.
Parish and town councils are part of local government in Northamptonshire together with Northamptonshire County Council and East Northants District Council. Each is responsible for different things.
The Parish Council is responsible for - for streetlighting, the bus shelter, allotments, the provision of litter and dog fouling bins, seats and benches, the village noticeboard, the telephone kiosk, and some tree maintainance.
The District Council is responsible for local services including housing, local planning, environmental health and refuse collections.
The County Council is responsible for strategic services such as highways, education, libraries, social services, strategic planning and refuse disposal.
