Swanwick Parish Council are part of local government in Derbyshire together with Derbyshire County Council and the Amber Valley Borough Council.

Derbyshire County Council are responsible for strategic services such as highways, education, libraries, social services, strategic planning and refuse disposal.

Amber Valley Borough Council are responsible for local services including housing, local planning, environmental health and refuse collection.

Parish and Town Councils are viewed as the part of government closest to the people. They are the only local government tier that represents residents at parish level. Importantly Parish Councils can ‘precept’ - raising a council tax each year to improve facilities and services for local people. Their powers and duties cover many things that we take for granted in making for comfort and well being where we live. They include the provision and maintenance of allotments, recreational and open spaces, halls, litter bins, street furniture, rights of way, seasonal flower displays, Christmas lights, organisation of community events and supporting local organisations.

Parish Councils also comment on planning applications and can be represented at public inquiries. Similarly they advise the County and District authorities on the views of residents, and especially priorities for local investment.

All Parish Council meetings are in public. They are led by the Council’s Chairman and advised by a Clerk who is there to see that business is conducted within the law.

All Swanwick Parish Council Meetings are advertised on the Parish Council notice boards located throughout Swanwick and on meetings page of their web site
