Your council

The Parish Council meets on the second Monday of each month to discuss parish affairs, including planning applications, street lighting, roads and footpaths, community issues and any national legislation that may affect the village. The meetings are open to the public but do follow an agenda, including public time at the start of the meetings when residents can raise their issues. The Council itself is made up of a number of keen locally elected representatives who strive to make Mears Ashby a safe, clean and attractive village in which to live or to visit.

The Council strongly monitors issues affecting local citizens, with particular attention paid to preventing crime and overseeing local groups that care for and support children and pensioners. The Council also provides encouragement to local sports and social organisations, some of which have links from this website.
