The Council takes on responsibility for many aspects of Town Life, but our powers are limited by statute, and we can only act within the realms of the Local Government Act and other Statutory Instruments.

The duties and responsibilities of Town and Parish Councils are complicated, and although a number of powers are available to local councils, powers are discretionary and councils are under no obligation to use them.

Brief details of your council's work can be found using the links at the bottom of this page, or look under the Key Documents section for the National Association of Local Council's booklet 'All About Town and Parish Councils'.  



The Town Council is progressing plans for allotments within Kirton in Lindsey, if you would like to be added to the list of people interested in having an allotment please contact the Town Clerk.

If you have previously expressed an interest, please let the Clerk know whether you wish to remain on the list.

We are in the early stages of planning, organising and securing this provision and so details of location, facilities and costings will be provided in due course to all those who express an interest.
