Arnesby Parish Council

First Established 1894

Arnesby Parish Council seeks to provide services and maintain those features of the village which make it an attractive place to live. The Parish Council aims to ensure that any changes or developments are sensitive to the existing character of the village and to the expectations of residents while also looking to the future and the services, facilities and opportunities which may be needed.

Arnesby is a village with an electoral role of 300. It is situated just to the West of the A 5199, approximately eight miles South of the centre of Leicester. It offers easy access to the M1 and the A14. The village has a very successful primary school and a popular Indian restaurant called Little India. The 12th century Church of St Peters and the Baptist Chapel are both well supported and in addition to regular services provide a varied programme of activities and support to the community.
