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.

Government regulations in the present pandemic prevent local councils from meeting in person and Charley Parish Council has set up a Zoom account and will hold all meetings virtually until further notice. A log in link will be on each Agenda and also instructions how to access the meeting by telephone. It is appreciated and regretted that the areas of the parish with very poor Broadband will have limited or no access to meetings. Residents are asked to raise any issues prior to the meetings by email to the Acting Clerk at admin@charleyparishcouncil.org.uk or by telephone to any of the councillors when they will be addressed as part of the Correspondence item on the agenda.

The Parish Council usually 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.
