Hough on the Hill, Brandon and Gelston are part of the civil parish of Hough on the Hill. 

The Parish Council has limited local powers and responsibilities, paid for by a small precept on council tax.  It also advises South Kesteven District Council on issues such as planning and Lincolnshire County Council on issues such as road maintenance.

Local issues can be raised with any councillor either directly or via the parish clerk.  Matters requiring attention should be notified at least 2 weeks before a meeting.  Routine enquiries should be addressed to the clerk. 

The Parish Council meets formally four times a year, usually in March, May (Annual General Meeting), September and December.  The normal venue is the Community Area within Hough on the Hill Church.  Agendas for each meeting are posted beforehand on the village notice boards and members of the local community are most welcome to attend.

The Annual Village Meeting which precedes the March council meeting includes reports on the council's activities and finances, as well as providing a forum for parishioners to raise issues or ask questions.
