Welcome

About Sandiacre

Sandiacre is recognised for its canal and industrial heritage, ease of access to major road networks, three Conservation Areas and the impressive 10th century St Giles’ Church.

The village has expanded over the years to create a large residential population of over 9,000, but one which still maintains a vibrant and friendly community at heart.

About the Parish Council

Safeguarding the future of Sandiacre for everyone is a priority for the Parish Council and Councillors welcome residents’ views. Residents are always very welcome to attend Parish Council meetings or speak directly with Councillors. Parish Councils are the first tier of local government working closest to their communities and consisting of local Councillors who volunteer their time. Sandiacre has 14 Members, which is the largest of the parishes in Erewash.

Meetings of the Parish Council

Council meetings are held on the first Tuesday in the month except during August and unless otherwise stated. In March, the Annual Parish Meeting is held and in May the Annual Parish Council Meeting takes place, at which the Chairman is elected. Meetings are held in the Memorial Institute on Doncaster Avenue. The dates of forthcoming meetings are shown on the Meetings page and displayed on the four community notice boards.
