The Parish Council has worked for the local community for over a hundred years with records going back to the 19th Century. Parish Councils were formed in England after the Local Government Act 1894 was reformed so that Parish Councils, made up of local volunteer parishioners, could oversee civic duties in rural communities. Today Lazonby Parish Council continues to be the voice for the community and made up of ten dedicated Parish Councillors who give their time on a voluntary basis, supported by a Clerk to the Parish Council and Treasurer to the Parish Council.
