Empingham Parish Council

For residents, you must be aware of the Conservation Area as this imposes further restrictions should your property be located within it. There are also a large number of trees with TPOs (Tree Preservation Orders) and you should check with Rutland County Council before you carry out any work on a tree within the parish.
