Motion text

That this House recognises the valuable contribution that Town and Parish Councils make to the resilience of local communities; recognises one of their strengths is being embedded within the heart of communities; applauds the many Town and Parish Councils that have and are in a position to play a significant role in the community resilience agenda, supporting local and central Government, particularly in response to local covid-19 lockdowns; notes with concern that the immense funding pressures facing local government has resulted in many Town and Parish Councils not being able to benefit from vital funding to tackle increased costs as a result of covid-19 and to enhance the local response; and calls on the Government to launch a specific fund that Town and Parish Councils can access directly to increase local community resilience and recover lost revenue as a result of the covid-19 outbreak.
