"He liked to complain about things: people at work, Harry, the council, Harry, the bank, and Harry were just a few of his favourite subjects."
—Vernon Dursley rants and raves[src]

This council was located somewhere in the county of Surrey. It exercised a certain amount of rights over the people in its dominion, which included the Dursley family. This council was among Vernon Dursley's favourite things to complain about.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • It is not clarified what sort of council Vernon is referring to. It could be the parish council for Little Whinging (assuming that they are part of the approximately 30% of the population with one), the district council, or the Surrey County Council.
