Your new councillors are, in alphabetic order and with their respective main responsibilities in brackets: Holger Allroggen (Chair), Robert Ashford (Planning), Gary Smith (Staffing and Village Hall liaison), Lee White (ICT / website). Stephen Lewington will remain on the council until September. More details of your Councillors are available on the Your Council
We look forward to working with you and representing the village’s interests as best we can.
On behalf of TPC

Parish Council Meetings
The next meeting of the Parish Council will be at 7:00pm on Monday 11th March 2024 in the Thurlaston Village Hall. Members of the public may make representations according to the Council’s Standing Orders within the Parish Council Meeting under item 5 from 7.15pm onwards for a time period of no more than 5 minutes. Members of the public who wish to contribute are requested to let the Parish Clerk know prior to the meeting.
After many years of use we are currently reviewing the website for our Parish. Currently we are in discussions with potential suppliers to make the website easier to use and navigate. If you would like to be involved in the web design or have specific requirements you would like to see, please contact the clerk directly or Lee White.
Poors Plot Charity
Charity details were updated during March 2023. Trustees are happy to make a grant of £300 available to any young person of the Thurlaston parish when they finish full time education to help with the cost of their further education.
Applications are usually considered at the next committee meeting of the Trustees. These occur approximately twice per year usually in March and September. Applications must be sent to the Secretary at least one week prior to the date of the meeting at which it will be discussed. A grant application form is available on this website for making requests.
Planning Applications Database
As of August 2021 all Planning applications which have been assessed by the Parish Council are located under the Planning section of the website. This includes representations relevant to the Rugby Local Plan.
The website now contains information on how to use the community defibrillator which is located in the old telephone kiosk on Main Street. To some degree this helps with villager training given this has not been possible during the Coronavirus pandemic.
