Labour: COAST&COUNTRY is only too aware that many hundreds of Labour &/ Cooperative party members are Labour, Cooperative or Independent councillors in their local community, parish or town; and key Labour activists for their locality and CLP.
We recognise the importance of bringing together these councillors from across the country for mutual support, sharing tips and strategies and developing greater Labour and/or Cooperative Party representation on their council and those around them. With kind support of the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust we will be spending the next year convening the Community, Parish and Town Network for all those interested in working together.
Over time we will develop this page to share appropriate resources and links, while convening councillors on topics of shared interest.
If you are such a town or parish councillor, group of said councillors, or about to stand we would like to invite you to become a founding member of CPTN: the network for Labour Community, Parish and Town Councillors.
If you’d like more information or have something that might be of interest to the network, please email CPTN@labourcoastandcountry.org.
Further resources will follow as we develop a good sense of what’s needed, for now here is a link to NALC – The National Association of Local Councils – their useful resources, as well as timely subject events.
