Parish councils exist in all parts of Dacorum outside Hemel Hempstead. Parishes may administer some local amenities such as allotments, playing fields and village halls. Parish councils are asked for their opinion on planning applications or on any issue which might have an impact on the parish.
All parishes employ a clerk and some have a parish or town council office. To pay for this and any other expenses, a sum called a parish precept or parish tax is added to the council tax of people who live in the relevant area.
