GPC is a local authority which makes decisions on behalf of, and represents the interests of, the people in the parish. It is the level of local government closest to the community, with the district authority (South Oxfordshire District Council) and the county authority (Oxfordshire County Council) above it in the hierarchy.
Different tiers of local government are responsible for different things in our community. Please see below a quick reference guide as to the main areas of responsibility of Goring-on-Thames Parish Council, South Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council.
