Welcome to the web site of the Parish of Great Casterton, a village of some 365 people on the eastern edge of Rutland.

The Parish Council consists of a Chairman and four Councillors who meet about every two months in Casterton Business  & Enterprise College. The date and the agenda for the meeting is posted on the notice boards, the meetings calendar and the Agenda tab on this web site a week in advance.

As an elected body we are responsible to you, the people we represent. Attending a council meeting is the best way to find out what we do. Look in the Meetings Calendar to find dates for our public meetings.

The Parish Council is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018 which came into force on 25th May 2018. The Council's general privacy notice on Data Protection can be viewed on this website under "The Parish Council" on the left hand side. The Council Data Controller is the Clerk.

See the latest News box on the left for what is happening and also the Police Notices. There is a Tab for the Parish Church which gives information about our Parish Church and Services.

On the right hand side there is a What's On calendar.
