What is a Parish Council?
A Parish Council is a local authority that makes decisions on behalf of the Parishioners in the Parish. It is the first tier of local government. As it is the authority closest to the Parishioners, Parish Councils are invariably the first place people will go with concerns or ideas. For this reason they are a vital part of any community.
Aldercar & Langley Mill Parish Council consists of 13 elected members representing all parts of the community. The role of Parish Councillors is entirely voluntary. The Clerk is responsible for ensuring the Parish Council fulfils its legal obligations and does not act beyond its powers.
Aldercar & Langley Mill Parish Council has its own office situated at Langley Mill Business Centre, Langley House, Amber Drive, Langley Mill, Derbyshire, NG16 4BE. The Parish Council Office is open for visitors from Tuesday to Thursday between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm.
Appointments to visit the office are preferred to allow sufficient allocation of time.

and commence at 6:30 pm. The meetings finish at 9:00 pm or before in accordance with Council Standing Orders.
All meetings allow a period of public participation at the beginning of each meeting. The public and press are cordially invited to attend meetings and address any issues which may arise relating to community matters.
