Parish Council

We provide a targeted service for Parish Councils which they can access,  if their Local Authority is a paying member of the RSN. 


We provide an evidence base for Neighbourhood Planning, with information available often down to Parish level for some key statistics which may be useful in the evidence base for the plan.  Comparative information is available to provide more value to the data.

Rural experts consider key issues affecting rural authorities and provide in depth analysis


Our Annual Rural Conference is a key event in the rural calendar and our Parish Councils are able to attend to gain access to expert speakers and workshops focusing on rural issues.


We run two Sounding Boards, one for Local Authority Councillors and one for Parish Councillors.  This enables the Councillors to share their views on key issues a few times a year to help support the work of the RSN.


We provide opportunities for Parish Councillors to network at our Annual Conference and electronically through the RSN.
