History

It was formed in 1974 from the Melton Mowbray Urban District and the Melton and Belvoir Rural Districtmarker. The council offices on Nottingham Road burnt down on May 30 2008. The fire station is on the opposite side of the road. Also on the opposite side of the road is the East Midlands Regional Assembly.

Political representation

There are 28 councillors, of which twenty are Conservative and so control the council. Three are Labour with two of these in the Melton Egerton ward, and one in the Melton Newport ward.

The Melton and Rutlandmarker constituency is Conservative.

Geography

The district borders South Kestevenmarker, in Lincolnshiremarker, to the east, Rutlandmarker to the south, Charnwood to the west, and Rushcliffemarker and Newark and Sherwoodmarker in Nottinghamshiremarker to the north. The north part of the district is known as the Vale of Belvoir.

Education

Until September 2008, the district operated the three-tier education system, whereby there were three middle schools. Everyone in the district went to the same upper school in Melton from 14-18. At both GCSE and A level, the district's results are under the England average. Students can also attend Brooksby Melton College from 16-18, but it gets no better results but it is mainly a vocational further education college for practical skills.
