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. The Council also looks to meet the needs and aspirations of the residence including those related to services, facilities and the environment.

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.

Climate Change Statement

Arnesby Parish Council

Climate Change Statement of Intent.

Arnesby Parish Council is only too aware of the concerns of people of all ages in the community of the growing climate change crisis. This has seen individuals campaign for single use shopping bags, people being encouraged to sort and recycle waste, the May Fayre Committee has made available sponsored hessian bags and there has been a wide concern for the protection of endangered wildlife. The Parish Council intends to support and encourage individual and group initiatives and to explore actions that it can take that are within the scope of its powers. More »

The Parish Council intends to monitor international, national and local policies. It will look to see how these might be interpreted for relevance at a parish council level and whenever appropriate to incorporate such policies and actions into its local plans.

To save energy the Parish Council, in cooperation with Leicestershire County Council, has installed LED street lights. To further save energy the lamps are also programmed to dim during the quietest times of the night.

The Parish Council will examine planning applications to ensure that wherever possible energy efficiency and heat conservation are key features of the plans and design as set out on Policy D1: Design, in the Neighbourhood Plan 2019.

The Parish Council intends to work with local land owners and farmers to explore ways in which the land and surrounding hedgerows are maintained to provide a sustainable environment for plants and wildlife. The Council will also explore possibilities for conserving and planting woodland trees in order to maximise carbon reduction. The Loseby Trust woodland, alongside the allotments, is a good example of this kind of initiative.

The Parish Council will remain alert to changes in technology related to developments such as solar energy, wind power, batteries and other methods for generating electricity and energy conservation. Many people will be considering changing to electric modes of transport in the future. Such changes in the propulsion of cars and other vehicles will inevitably have significant structural implications. When schemes or policies suitability for community projects become available the Council will evaluate their cost benefits and relevance to a community the size of Arnesby and initiate the appropriate action.
