Your Parish Council is made up of five Councillors who meet regularly, making decisions which endeavour to make Burton Overy a better place to live, work and visit. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do and we normally meet on the third Wednesday of the month in the small room of the village hall. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do and has links to all local services in YOUR local services.

The picturesque village of Burton Overy is situated in a pleasant valley, surrounded by trees, 8 miles S.E. of Leicester. The village has a thriving and active village community and is home to 5 working farms, although there are 8 working farms within the parish. It was designated as a Conservation Area in 1974. Further information on the village community can be found on our Village Website.
