The District Councils’ Network is a cross-party member led network of all 201 district councils in England.  We are a Special Interest Group of the Local Government Association (LGA), and provide a single voice for district councils within the LGA. We lobby central government, the political parties and other stakeholders directly on behalf of our members, as well as commissioning research, providing support, and sharing best practice.

We act as an informed and representative advocate for districts to government and other national bodies, based on our unique position to deliver for ‘local’ people. We issue regular newsletters, host member & multi-stakeholder events, respond to government consultations, undertake research and produce publications on behalf the sector.
