Welcome to the home page of Foxton Parish Council, which serves the Leicestershire Parish of Foxton.

We live to make Foxton, Leicestershire, a better place to live, work and visit.

The Foxton Parish Council provides some of your local services such as grass cutting, public benches and dog bin emptying. We also comment on planning applications, maintain the Foxton NDP, and report issues such as blocked drains and damaged street fitments and signs to the relevant authorities.

The Council meets monthly and members of the public are welcome to attend and raise any queries or concerns they may have.

Meeting Minutes and Agendas are posted on noticeboards in the village and on this website here

On this website you will find information about councillors and how we conduct business ( ABOUT THE COUNCIL ). This section also allows villagers to send questions and queries into the Clerk, review statutory finance documents and raise FOI requests.

Planning applications and Highways matters relating to the village can be viewed in the PLANNING section of this website.

Our COMMUNITY area helps users gain a deep understanding of the village. From its history as a settlement, attractions in and around Foxton (including Foxton Locks and Inclined Plane), a directory of vibrant village clubs, groups and societies (and their calendar of what's on in the village) ... to its well-appointed Village Hall, picture gallery, newsletter archive and walks along the paths and bridleways nearby.

The AZ contains details of services relevant to all UK parishes and the view of these can be filtered to show only those relating to Foxton.

Deadline for commenting on building of new SuperPrison at Gartree

Posted: Tue, 11 Jan 2022 14:15 by Adele Rogers

There are only 10 days left to comment on this planning application. You may be aware that the Ministry of Justice is applying to build a huge, new prison, three times the size of Gartree prison, next to the current prison. Your Parish Council has objected to this as there will be negative effects on our village such as increased traffic and extra pressure on foul water drainage. We are particularly concerned about extra traffic fumes affecting Foxton School. If you wish to let Harborough District Council know what you think, you only have 10 days to do this. Please go to Harborough District Council website (see link below) and type 21/01600 into the search bar. You can then view the application and comment online. Or you can write to HDC planning department with planning application code 21/01600/OUT.If you want to know more, please contact Adele (Parish Council Chairman) on 07581 341957.
