Coronavirus looks likely to affect us all. But we have the wonderful privilege of living in a caring village community and between us we can make sure that no one is unsupported.
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 from 2020 we will normally meet on the third Tuesday of the month in 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 agenda and supporting paperwork for meetings is published on the website during the week before the meeting.
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.
The parish council, working in partnership with Leicestershire County Council, has designated the grass verges on Back Lane near its junction with Main Street as Wildflower Verges.
These verges will be subject to a reduced annual maintenance regime so as to promote increased biodiversity.
A baseline survey has now been undertaken to establish the current grass and flower species growing in the verges which will be used to assess the impact of this designation on the biodiversity in the village.

The Rutland Round is a walk around the county boundary of Rutland and is 65 miles in length. (This is not the same as the circumference of Rutland Water which is much shorter). The walk will be arranged in 5 separate groups of walkers each starting at a different point on the circumference and each walking approximately 13 miles during the day, to join the entire round together.
Further details on the attached flyer.
