NPC provides AVDC with comments on all planning applications within Nash and may comment on applications in other parishes close to Nash, but it is AVDC that makes the decisions.

Much of the Parish Council’s work consists of advising AVDC and BCC on matters relating to Nash. The Parish Council normally meets six times a year and in addition holds an Annual Parish Meeting of residents at some time between 1 March and 1 June. At this meeting the Parish Council presents its Annual Report, and Nash residents can raise matters of interest and concern relating to the village and to the Parish Council.

The Parish Council is part of the North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium which responds to major development proposal in the North Bucks Area. In association with Whaddon Parish Council, Nash was successful in stopping Milton Keynes developing over the Shenley Ridge into the Whaddon/Nash Valley in the short to medium term.

The Recreation Ground, including an area with play equipment, is located directly behind the churchyard. It is much used by local children. The Annual Village Fete, organised jointly by the Village Hall Committee and the Church, is held in the Recreation Ground each year.
