The District Council’s Network represents 200 district councils from across England to provide a single national voice for district councils within the LGA, Central Government and national bodies. Our small office team supports the DCN Member Board, Chief Executive Group, DCN National Conference and 3 DCN Assemblies alongside a staff development programme and other important meetings and seminars.
