Aintree Village Parish Councils are the third tier of local government. They may choose to call themselves a Parish or Town Council depending on the number of residents, but this does not alter their status or responsibilities. Aintree Parish Council, now known as Aintree Village Parish Council , was established in 1895 and consists of twelve voluntary Parish Councillors who are elected for a four year term of office to serve and administer needs of the residents of Aintree Village. It employs a part time Clerk to the Council and a part time Responsible Finance Officer to implement policy decisions. Funding is raised by a precept on each residential property in the Parish of Aintree Village.
