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

We strive 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 A-Z contains details of services relevant to all UK parishes and the view of these can be filtered to show only those relating to Foxton.

You'll find up to date Foxton NEWS posts in the news section - with the three most recent posts appearing below.
