Kent operates in a two-tier system, meaning there is Kent County Council, which is responsible for certain services across the whole county and 12 borough, city and district councils, responsible for different services in the areas they cover. You may also have a parish council in your area. Kent has over 300 parish and town councils who provide a variety of services to their local community. All tiers work together to deliver services across Kent.
You, our residents, as well as the elected members and the staff who work here are all essential in decision making and making sure services are delivered.
