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.

Due to Covid restrictions we cannot meet for our usual annual meeting for residents, so we have produced a report about what the PC has been up to over the last year.

- NEW - Traffic website
Highways receive a great number of enquiries about a variety of issues on the road, many of these are around parking, speeding and pedestrian safety.
To help support communities in understanding what solutions are available, a new website has been developed to provide clear and straight forward guidance on the types of options that may be appropriate to address a particular issue as well as the criteria, process involved and potential costs.

This new website has been designed to be easy to use and allow residents and communities to make informed decisions on the most appropriate and effective solutions that would benefit their community. It is possible to report road and traffic issues.
The information on the website does not yet include all the information we would want to make available to our residents but will continue to be developed and we very much welcome your feedback and suggestions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org » Less
