Welcome to this website

This site has been created to inform residents in the Gartree Division of the Leicestershire County Council about County Council matters that affect this beautiful area of High Leicestershire, which straddles the Roman Gartree Road, and consists of the Harborough District Council wards of Glen and Kibworth plus parts of the Billesdon and Tilton wards.  The Gartree Division boundaries changed for the 4 May 2017 elections – see here.

MP for Harborough Constituency (now Lord Edward Garnier QC) retired in June 2018, and has now been proposed to become a member of the House of Lords. The Conservative MP since 8 June 2017 election is Neil O’Brien OBE.
