Thanks for visiting our website!
Your Barleythorpe Parish Council is independent of other levels of local government, i.e. Rutland County Council, however we maintain a close working relationship.  

We meet at least six times a year, including one annual parish meeting and are responsible for very few matters.  Your Parish Councillors have an active interest and concern for our local community.  

We represent local people and work in partnership with them and others when necessary.  We help facilitate the provision of local services and facilities and take decisions that form the policy of the Parish Council. Parish Councillors have to abide by the local government code of conduct.   Parish Councillors must also declare a personal or prejudicial interest in any matter under discussion at a Parish Council meeting as required.

Rutland Climate Action Network (RCN) was formed in response to Rutland County County declaring a climate crisis in 2021, recognising that communities face challenges and barriers to tackling a huge global problem through local action. The aim of the network is to provide solutions and enable local tangible action by linking like-minded people, providing resources such as our website and social media for information sharing, and providing a forum for exchanging ideas and disseminating information.
