Civil Parish

Parishes are subdivisions of local authorities in many parts of England, and their councils are the most local level of government. Unlike electoral wards / divisions however, parishes are not found in all parts of England. The Welsh equivalents are communities. Note that the full term for administrative parishes is 'civil parishes', to distinguish them from the ecclesiastical parishes which are found in all parts of the UK.
