And not so local – see below.
A three-tier system of local government operates in Norfolk. The recent long-running review of the structure has been abandoned so no change is likely in the short term.
The three tiers are:
- Denton Parish Council
The Parish Council
What it does. Who is on it. When they meet. What they discuss.
- South Norfolk District Council
The District Council
Responsible for: Planning and Development Control, Housing, Environmental Health, Waste Collection & Recycling, Economic Development and Leisure.
Includes a link to "My South Norfolk"
- Norfolk County Council
The County Council
Responsible for: Education, Social Services, Highways & Transportation, Waste Disposal, Libraries & Museums, Fire Service and Trading Standards.
