The local council for the Civil Parish of Charley consists of five members who are elected or co-opted from residents of the area or those who have working connections with the Parish. Mr Brian Duncombe is employed as part time Clerk to the Council.

The Parish Council meets every other month at 7.30 p.m. in the Oaks Storer Hall, Oaks in Charnwood (next to the Church of St James the Greater). All are welcome to attend the meetings.

The Parish Council is responsible for the provision and maintenance of benches and notice boards at strategic points in the parish and much of the Council's effort is concerned with protecting the unique environment of Charley, disseminating information from North West Leicestershire District Council, Leicestershire County Council and local news and events via this web site and the bi-annual Parish Newsletter.

Charley Parish Council provides YOUR local services. We endeavour to make Charley a better place to live, work and visit. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Find local groups and businesses in our community directory. Use the search or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find what you want or would like to recommend any improvements to our website then please contact us.

Worried about your energy bills?

NWLDC have just introduced local criteria for energy efficiency (ECO) grants which means funding can be extended to more people in North West Leicestershire. They have also partnered up with Harborough Energy to deliver loft and cavity wall insulation measures to households that meet the criteria. The scheme is open to home owners and those privately renting and health conditions affected by the cold are included in the local criteria. Much of the criteria is based on what the County Council is hoping to introduce but having its own criteria has meant they can get this in place now instead of waiting and this has also been tweaked to better support off-gas households who we know struggle locally with fuel poverty issues.

Lottery Grant to Charnwood Forest Regional Park

Lottery Grant to Charnwood Forest Regional Park

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded a grant of £2.75 million to the organisations involved in the proposal to establish a Charnwood Forest Regional Park. Charley, quite distinct from Charnwood, has a significant landscape and heritage in this venture so the Parish Council will hope to be fully involved with all ideas relating to our parish.
