Seaton is a small rural village in Rutland, which is the smallest county in England. The village is located in the East Midlands, about 100 mile north of London, but close to many historical towns such as Uppingham, Oakham and Stamford, and within easy each of local cities such as Leicester, Peterborough and Cambridge. It is also just a stone's throw from Rutland Water and Eyebrook Reservoir which offer fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling, sailing, trout fishing and bird watching. Put simply, it's a great place to live!

Most of your local services are provided by Rutland County Council which is based in nearby Oakham, but Seaton Parish Council works closely with them to represent local views so that we can make Rutland, and Seaton in particular, an even better place to live, work and play.

If you want to report a maintenance problem with local roads or pathways (eg street lighting, flooding, potholes, fly-tipping) you should do this directly to Rutland County Council using their website or the fixmystreet link below.

However, if you want to know what's going on in Seaton and how we conduct village business, this website includes a wealth of information. Please use the search facilities or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require, or would like to add something to the site, then please contact us. We are here to help.

Dogs

Dogs have been a great source of joy for many of us during the recent pandemic, but they can also be a source of concern for others.

Seaton Parish Council has received a number of complaints recently so please forgive this timely reminder to dog owners:

- Please keep your dogs under control, especially when they are off their lead.

- Please do not take your dogs into the playing field (so we avoid the risk of children becoming infected through contact with dog faeces). More »

- Please, pick up your dog poo and either take it home or place it in a bin (there is noe outsigde the pedestrian entrance to the playing field and one by the steps in the pub car park).

- And, please don't leave bags of dog poo on the ground or hanging in trees or bushes - its unhealthy and unsightly.

Many thanks. » Less

Seaton Playing Fields are Open in accordance with Govt Covid Guidelines

Seaton Playing Fields are Open in accordance with Govt Covid Guidelines

SEATON PARISH COUNCIL PLAYING FIELDS

The renovation of the Children's Play Area off Thompsons Lane Seaton has now been completed. A petanque pitch will be added in early Spring when the weather improves.

Seaton Parish Council has provided these facilities for the enjoyment of local residents and their families, but will not accept any liability for loss, damage or injury.

The area is therefore open for use in accordance with the following rules: More »

  • no dogs or kites are allowed in the playing fields.
  • the equipment is designed for children up to age 13 under the supervision of a responsible adult.
  • each responsible adult should decide which equipment their children may use and what level of supervision is required, taking account of each child's age, size and ability.
  • any damage should be reported immediately by email to the spcchair.seatonrutland@gmail.com so that appropriate remedial action can be taken.

Users must comply with the Govt regulations on the use of play areas during the Covid pandemic. These are available on the Gov.UK website and stress that:

  • the virus can survive for up to several days on some hard surfaces. This risk may be reduced when outdoors, where surfaces may be subject to UV light and/or rain, but the virus could survive long enough on frequently used/touched outdoor surfaces to facilitate transmission;
  • playgrounds are therefore primarily open for use by children who do not have access to private outdoor space, like their own garden;
  • responsible adults can take children to a playground for exercise, but they must not socialise with other people while there;
  • anyone using the play area must comply with the 2 metre rule on social distancing whenever possible.

We hope that you enjoy the play area, but please follow these rules so that we all stay safe. If you don't, Seaton Parish Council will have no choice but to close the play area.
