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.

New Police Office in Coalville

Issued on 8/1/18 at 9:04 a.m. by Neighbourhood Watch

From today (Monday 8 January) police officers in Coalville are moving into their new office at the back of the fire station on Broad Street.

The old building on Ashby Road had become too big for modern policing purposes and was expensive to run and costly to repair. The site has already been sold to a housing developer.

The new smaller more efficient office will accommodate the Dedicated Neighbourhood Officers (DNOs) and the Neighbourhood Investigation Unit (NIU). It will not be open to the public as police front enquiry staff are based in the reception of North West Leicestershire District Council on Whitwick Road. More »

Leicestershire Police is committed to being based in the heart of communities and the move does not mean there will be less officers in the area. The local policing presence will remain the same. Officers will continue to use the five neighbourhood offices that are based in a range of buildings across the area patrolling and working as they do now.

Leicestershire Police's estate is under constant review to ensure its buildings remain fit for purpose and represents an efficient and effective use of taxpayers' money.

Latest News re Broadband in Charley

The following message arrived from BT the day after the Parish Council Meeting on January 3rd.

"We envisage that after contract 2 has been delivered, so by then end of 2018, the broadband coverage for Charley will be just over 50%. Half of the properties in Charley will have access to fibre broadband and the other half will be unserved. The properties that will benefit during our contract 2 delivery is from the cabinet Shepshed R8 which is currently in progress with the supplier. The solution will be "fibre to the cabinet" a "cure" process to new cabinet. The reā€parenting of existing lines onto the new cabinet will ensure superfast speeds are achieved. Unfortunately I'm unable to identify the properties set to benefit from this structure at this stage.
I'll be meeting with the suppliers next week hopefully, with them I will discuss the plans for Charley. I'll be in touch again mid- next week. "
Kind regards Shabaz
