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.

Use the search or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find what you want or would like to recommend any improvements to our website then please contact us.

Countryside Alliance Awards 2017

Countryside Alliance Awards 2017

Get involved and support your local rural businesses

The Countryside Alliance Awards, also known as the 'Rural Oscars', are THE rural business awards to win, and give a voice and platform to the best of our produce, enterprise, heritage and communities and we would like you to get involved to help generate nominations and support your local businesses.

The Rural Oscars are diverse, highly coveted and a great morale boost to those in the running. They were borne of a desire to give a voice and a platform to rural businesses and to acknowledge the efforts of thousands of unsung heroes who routinely go above and beyond the call of duty for their communities. The Countryside Alliance had long felt the many "doom and gloom" tales of rural decline in the media did not accurately reflect the spirit of rural people and their desire to protect our landscapes and communities for future generations. More »

Nominated by the public, the Awards recognise and honour those who routinely go the extra mile for their community. Nominations are open from now until 13 November 2017. Winners will be announced in Spring 2018 at the grand final at the House of Lords. » Less
