Other Agencies – Who Does What

Chesham Bois Parish Council (CBPC) serves the residents of the Parish. Like other Parish Councils (or Town Councils if they serve an urban area) it is a statutory body, representing the lowest tier of Local Government, sitting below but independent of District and County Councils.

This brief explanation of who does what will help explain who does what, and how you can access services outside our responsibility:
