Town councils fall into the same category as parish and community councils. The councillors look into local issues that are not covered by district or county councils such as allotments, public clocks, bus shelters, community centres, play areas and play equipment, grants to help local organisations and consultation on neighbourhood planning. 

They can also issue fixed penalty fines for litter, graffiti, fly posting, and dog offences.
