LCC - Your help is required for Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) development

Your help is required for Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) development - public engagement on draft networks

Continuing with our programme of work to inform the Council's approach to providing enhanced cycling and walking facilities in the County, public engagement launches this week asking for people's views on the draft priority cycling and walking networks. These have been developed as part of the ongoing development of the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIP's) for the Loughborough area, and South of Leicester area, which includes Blaby, Oadby and Wigston. More »

As many people as possible are encouraged to have their say on the draft plans by accessing the online map based engagement here:

Parish Councils are asked to promote to their local communities this engagement opportunity for people to help shape the priority cycling and walking networks from an early stage.

The engagement runs for 4 weeks (Thursday 20th January to Sunday 20th February) and responses will be considered alongside early feedback already received from local councillors, to help inform the final priority cycling and walking routes to be included in the LCWIP's for these areas.

LCWIP's set out the vision and key priorities for infrastructure improvements in each of the areas, to create attractive, joined-up priority cycling and walking networks, encouraging and enabling people to travel more sustainably. LCWIP's are also key plans in helping us to secure funding to deliver these improvements to cycling and walking routes, including via Government bidding opportunities and from developers.

It is currently anticipated that the LCWIPs will be finalised and presented to the Cabinet for approval in late summer/early autumn. » Less

BDC news release - Braunstone Parish consultation


Braunstone Parish consultation underway

Residents of Braunstone Town and Thorpe Astley are being urged to have their say on whether any changes are needed for governing their local area.

With more than 7,100 properties, and around 12,500 electors in the area, the Parish of Braunstone is the largest in the district, made up of two distinct communities in Braunstone Town and Thorpe Astley. More »

A consultation about the local governance arrangements for Parish of Braunstone has started, asking for views on whether any changes are required to the community governance arrangements. This could include setting up a new Parish Council for Thorpe Astley.

Residents can have their say by emailing before 5pm on Monday 04 March. Written submissions can be sent in and addressed to the Democratic Services and Governance Manager, Blaby District Council, Desford Road, Narborough, LE19 2EP.

All representations will be considered and recommendations of whether any changes should be made will be published later in March. If changes are proposed and approved by Councillors, they would become official on 01 April 2023, but would not be implemented until the next local elections on 02 May 2023.

Councillor Terry Richardson, Leader of Blaby District Council, said: "We feel this is the right time to hear views from those living in Braunstone Town and Thorpe Astley. We are asking you what you want for your area.

"Please engage and give us your thoughts on the future of the Parish of Braunstone. It is vital that this is led by the views of residents and whether the community wants change. We'll also be speaking to Braunstone Town Council, neighbouring parish councils and other stakeholders to ensure we get as much input as possible."
