Within the borders of Norfolk there is a hierarchy of county, district and parish councils.
Within this three-tier structure there is some duplication and overlap of responsibilities between the different levels.
At Norfolk County Council we provide the strategic and more costly services like social services, trading standards, fire and rescue, transport and education.
Norfolk is then sub-divided into seven district, borough and city councils:
- Great Yarmouth
- King's Lynn and West Norfolk
- North Norfolk
- South Norfolk
Their individual contact details are below. To find your local council, visit Where I Live and enter your postcode.
The district, borough and city councils are each responsible within their districts for:
- Council tax collection
- Refuse collection
- Street cleaning
- Economic development
- Environmental Health
- Leisure facilities
The districts are further divided up into parish or town councils, each with their own elected councils.
All the powers of a parish council are shared with a district council. Parishes deal with local services and problems at a very practical, detailed level.
