The Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES) ALCA Area Group meets 4 times a year prior to the Bath and North East Somerset Council Parish Liaison Meetings. The Area Group meetings are for the 50 member Local Councils and Parish Meetings to raise issues and questions to be addressed at the Parish Liaison Meetings, by Bath and North East Somerset Council.

The four representatives, elected by the ALCA Group, to sit on the Avon Regional Committee feed the more sector related issues up to the National Association of Local Council and also feed into sector specific consultations on behalf of the membership, to influence NALCs lobbying of government for policy change where needed.

The B&NES ALCA Area Group also separately elects representatives to sit on external bodies, such as the Mendips AONB, the Standards Committee and Parish Charter Working Group.

Upcoming Parish Liaison meetings between Bath & North East Somerst Council and the B&NES ALCA group members are:

  • Wednesday 23 March 2022
  • Wednesday 13 July 2022
  • Wednesday 12 October 2022

All meetings will start at 6.30pm. It is likely that meetings will be held via Zoom, Parish Councils are asked to pass their views on whether they wish to meet virtually or in person to Alison Wells – email This email address is being protected from spambots.
