Parish Councils are the most local part of our democratic system, the part of local government that is closest to the public. The Parish Council works with, and for, our community and it represents you.
Barby & Onley has a Parish Council of 11 members and a Parish Clerk. We meet on the second Monday of each month at 7.30pm usually at Barby Village Hall, Kilsby Road, Barby, but twice a year the meetings are held in Onley Village Hall, Onley Park, Willoughby.
To assist in the running and maintenance of the Parish the following voluntary appointments have been made - Tree Warden (Bernard Scott), Footpaths Warden (Mike Leppard), Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator (Dom Fisher), Highway Warden (Dom Fisher) and Newsletter Editor and Webmaster (Ian Webb).
Agendas for full Parish Council and for Committee Meetings are posted on the Notice boards outside Barby Stores, Barby Village Hall and at Onley, and are also available on the Meetings & Minutes page
of this website at least three days before the meetings. Minutes of Parish Council meetings can also be found on the Meetings & Minutes page
of this website and are also posted on the Notice Boards.
Members of the public are welcomed and encouraged to attend all meetings and can take the opportunity to raise issues with the Council at the beginning of the meeting.
Annual Parish Meeting – Every English Parish must hold a Parish Meeting between 1st March and 1st June (inclusive). The meeting is only open to electors from the Parish and provides an opportunity to raise concerns and hear about the work undertaken by the Parish Council during the previous 12 months.
