Welcome to the website of the Broughton Parish Council.
Its aim is to keep the community informed of news, plans and developments around the parish of Broughton in Northamptonshire as has engaged the Parish Council or is likely to. If you have comments, enquiries or suggestions about the work of the council or how it can influence the actions of the Borough and County Councils, please contact us.
Parish Council meetings are generally held every third Wednesday of the month, except in August, commencing at 7pm in the village hall. The agenda and previous minutes as submitted for approval are all viewable from the links above. A ‘right to speak’ facility enables members of the public to address the meeting on any issue of concern and meetings of the council are generally open for public attendance.
