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.

Following receipt of grant aid from Harborough District Council for the installation of the planters near the entrance signs to the village, the Parish Council has recently become a Member / Agent of the Harborough District Lotto.
Harborough Lotto is a weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Harborough District. All good causes supported by the lottery, which includes Burton Overy Parish Council, will benefit Harborough District and local residents. More »
Tickets for the lottery cost £1 a week and each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each
week, with a top prize of £25,000.
Each ticket has six numbers between 0 and 9. There is a draw every Saturday night when a six-digit winning combination is picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2 to 6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all six and you win the £25,000 jackpot.
When people buy tickets and select Burton Overy Parish Council as their local 'good cause', 50p from every £1 ticket sold goes to the parish council, 10p is distributed to other local good causes in Harborough with the remainder allocated to prize money and admin costs.
