Welcome

Notts ALC is a membership organisation for the parish and town councils of Nottinghamshire - the elected bodies closest to the people they represent. 

We support, advise and train our councils and seek to facilitate communication between them and the other tiers of government. 

As a membership organisation we cannot deal with enquiries from the public but information on our website is publicly available. 

Events and Meetings

Below and HERE are our upcoming events and meetings. All, unless stated, are for members of the Association only. If you are not sure whether or not your council is a member of NottsALC, please ask your Clerk.
