Kensworth is the third largest parish in South Bedfordshire on the border with Hertfordshire covering an area of 970 hectares. It has an Electoral Register population of 1191. The parish is served by nine councillors who are supported by a Parish Clerk

Kensworth Parish Council were awarded Quality Status in 2008. At a meeting of the County Accreditation Panel held in May 2012 panel members found much good practice in the portfolio of evidence submitted in support of Kensworth Parish Council's application for re-accreditation. Consequently re-accreditation was given for a further four year period.

To achieve Quality Status a Parish Council must submit an application, together with supporting evidence to the National Association of Local Councils. A council must meet certain mandatory requirements plus a percentage of some discretionary requirements. The criteria are; Electoral Mandate; Qualifications of the Clerk; Meetings; Communications; Annual Reports; Accounts (Annual return); Code of Conduct; Promoting local democracy and citizenship; Terms and conditions for staff; Training.
