The Association of Town and Parish Councils and Parish Meetings in Cumbria

Cumbria Association of Local Councils (CALC) is a not for profit membership organisation, representing, training and advising the parish (including town) councils of Cumbria, who form the grass roots tier of local government in England.

We offer members a resource of important, operational information and facilitate communication at all levels of the parish network - district, county, regional and national.

If you are part of a council which is a member of CALC, Log in to the members' area  for a wide range of advice and guidance, details of training and events and lots more.  Contact us if you are a member council but don't have login details.


Pay Scale update - We have been notified that the pay award from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022 of a 1.75% increase has been agreed by the GMB and UNISON. Employers have been encouraged to pay this award to employees as soon as possible. NALC will circulate the revised pay scales for our sector later this week.  Although the overall increase generally is 1.75%, the first pay point has been increased to reflect the new national living wage rate.

Section 137 sum for 2022 - 2023 - The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has notified the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) that the appropriate sum for the purpose of section 137(4)(a) of the Local Government Act 1972 for parish and town councils in England for 2022-23 is £8.82 per elector.
