Residents asked for views on creation of an Upper Saxondale Parish Council

Residents in Upper Saxondale, Rushcliffe are to be consulted on their views about the creation of a new Parish Council for the village.


A Community Governance Review has been launched by Rushcliffe Borough Council following the submission of a petition from the community.  


Each household, local business and community group in the petitioned area will now receive an information sheet and questionnaire direct to their address.

This will outline the information also available at Residents are asked to indicate if they wish for the areas to be parished, and for a Parish Council to be created before the deadline of Friday May 13.

Until now the village of Upper Saxondale has been split, part being run by Radcliffe on Trent Parish Council and Cropwell Butler Parish Council but the different identities of the villages, plus the projected housing growth for Shelford, led to a petition being presented to Rushcliffe Borough Council last year.


Following the Community Governance Review, of which this consultation is part, should the Council agree to the proposals, the new Upper Saxondale Parish Council would come into effect after local elections in May 2023.
