Benefits of Membership

Avon Local Councils' Association

Benefits of Membership

Being a member of ALCA is like having an extra person on your council team. Knowledgeable and experienced, there isn’t much that we haven’t seen before. We offer face to face, telephone and e-mail support to all member councils, and on the rare occasions that we cannot help we’ll know someone that can!

“It’s like having an extra member of staff, but at much less cost and no management responsibility!” - Patchway Town Councillor

Member Councils rely on ALCA to keep them up-to-date on all the issues, legislation and developments affecting the sector so that they don’t have to spend their own valuable time and resources doing so.

ALCA is also the body responsible for the checking and submission of Loan Sanction Approvals by all Parish and Town councils to the Secretary of State.

Providing a framework for consultation and arrangements for the effective representation and promotion of Local Councils at local, regional and national levels, ALCA works to maintain relationships with Local Government and community organisations to further the aims of Local Councils.

Parish and Town councils are stronger together, and by collectively supporting ALCA they are assured of quality services, value for money and a strong sector voice.

Annual Fees

The subscription fees of NALC and ALCA are combined and charged as one annual fee to Member Local Councils. A Local Council cannot opt to be a member of ALCA without being a member of NALC and vice Versa, because of the way we work together and co-operate to provide our services.

Both NALC and ALCA base subscriptions on the number of electors within a parish. The rates are agreed at our respective AGM’s in October each year.

NALC charges a flat rate of 0.0749 per elector, capped at £1,920 for 2022/23, this is added to the relevant ALCA subs fee, set out in the structure below:
