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.
There are currently three vacancies for parish councillors – if you are 18 or over, live or work in the village, and are interested in knowing more about what’s involved, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org – new blood and ideas are always very welcome so please do come forward!
Broughton News is now published as a regular newsletter rather than an annual magazine; the latest edition can be downloaded here – please see especially the information concerning the Neighbourhood Plan meeting on 20 February 2016 – all welcome!:
