Somerset Association of Local Councils


The Somerset Association of Local Councils (SALC) is a membership organisation that represents, supports and provides advisory services to more than 260 town and parish councils and parish meetings across Somerset.


As SALC is one of 40 County Associations affiliated to the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) they appoint a councillor to sit on the National Council as the representative for Somerset. NALC plays a pivotal role in lobbying the government to ensure the views of parish and town councils are heard and we act to ensure Somerset have a voice in this process.


The Somerset Association receives specialist advice and information from NALC, which we use and disseminate for the benefit of our member Councils.


For more information see the SALC website.
