Borough, county … who does what?
These are just some of the main areas of responsibility.
The county council is responsible for adult social care, children’s services, transport and highways planning, which includes the maintenance of roads, such as fixing portholes. On-street parking charges are levied by the county council.
The borough council is responsible for planning, recycling, refuse collection and street cleaning. It provides temporary housing and encourages the creation of more affordable homes. It runs a number of public car parks and owns some industrial and retail sites.
