Old Catton Parish Council has a number of responsibilities within the Parish. These include looking after the recreation grounds in Church Street and Lavaré Park, including the two pavilions, football and cricket pitches, tennis courts, bowling-green and children's play areas. The Council also looks after most of the street lighting, notice boards, bus shelters, village sign, church-yard, war memorial and cemetery.
A full Parish Council meeting takes place on the second Monday of the month in the Pavilion on Church Street Recreation Ground at 7pm. It is at this meeting that members of the public are invited to contribute views, comments and suggestions.
There are three levels of the new award – level one Foundation, level two Quality and level three Gold.
