Town and Parish Councils

The Liberal Democrats have many indivduals that serve on Town or Parish councils - in some places the councillors stand under a Liberal Democrat banner, in others by convention, because the organisations were essentially apolitical, they stood as unassigned individuals. The experience of other unitary authorities show us that the likelihood is that most discretionary spending will be handled at this lower level - council precepts are unconstrained by central government and allow councils to raise extra funds for local amenities. This suggests that in future many of these councils will become more politicised.
