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.
