Local Government consists of a number of Local Authorities:
  • Twenty-nine County Councils
  • Five City Councils
  • Five Borough Corporations
  • Seventy-five Town Councils
The purpose of Local Government is to enable people at local level to provide services for themselves, to exercise some control over their affairs and to make decisions through the democratic process.

Local Residents elect individuals to represent them on the various authorities. Elected representatives make decisions on behalf of their constituents and also levy local taxes to fund service provision.

Local Authorities carry out a broad range of activities that make a significant contribution to the physical, cultural, social and environmental development of their communities.

These services include:

Physical Planning and Development, Roads, Sanitary Services, Housing, Waste Management, Fire Protection, Libraries and Museums, Environmental Protection, Parks, Amenities and Arts.

There is a close working relationship between Local Authorities and various resident and community groups in the preparation of Urban and Rural Renewal Schemes and other local action plans.
