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 bins. We also comment on planning applications, and report issues such as blocked drains and damaged street fitments and signs to the relevant authorities.

The Council meets monthly (usually on the second Monday of every month except for August and December), and members of the public are welcome to attend and raise any queries or concerns they may have. Agendas are posted on noticeboards in the village and on the website.

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 relating to the village can be viewed in the PLANNING section of this website.

We also developed the village's Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The COMMUNITY area contains a calendar of activities in the village, useful details about Village Hall hire and in DIRECTORY you'll find community clubs, societies and organisations operating in the Parish - and in addition a wealth of interesting articles about the history of Foxton going back to the 12th Century.

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 NEWS posts in the news section - with the three most recent posts appearing below.

Residents in Harborough District can now refer themselves, a family member that requires help, or someone in the community who needs help, during the Coronavirus crisis to the council's Community Hub. More »

People who are vulnerable and do not have a local support network can contact Harborough District Council if they:

  • need supplies of food and essentials
  • are feeling lonely or would like a friendly phone call or text message
  • would like to connect with a local community group
  • need transport to medical appointments
  • would like advice about staying active and exercising

Support will be delivered directly by Harborough District Council or voluntary and community partners.

To refer themselves, or someone they are concerned about, residents should fill in the online form at www.harborough.gov.uk/hd-community-hub

If residents have internet access we encourage them to use the online form.

If they cannot use the online form they should email communityhub@harborough.gov.uk or call 01858 821 232 from 9am-5pm

Just a reminder to say, if you are co-ordinating volunteers or you're aware of active support groups operating within your parish, please either email n.hankin@harborough.gov.uk or complete the online form.

It's really important you provide us with this information so please get in touch.

We've had over 50 support groups coming forward. We're continuing to work together with Voluntary Action South Leicestershire (VASL) and the community and voluntary sector to make sure everybody within the District can access the support they need during Coronavirus pandemic.

We will have Ward representatives as a point of contact, who will work together with support groups operating within your parish.
