Statement from North West Leicestershire District Council regarding the Kegworth Public Realm project

Even though the engagement period designed to give residents the opportunity to have their say on the plans for Kegworth Market Place has not yet properly started, we have been delighted to receive a large number of early comments from those that have taken the time to get in touch.

Unfortunately, the latest COVID-19 restrictions now make it clear that we are going to really struggle to engage with everyone we would want to reach. For this reason, we have taken the decision not to proceed with the engagement process scheduled to run 4 to 24 November 2020.

We are currently making plans to recommence the engagement process in the new year and in the meantime, we will be refining the design to take account of the comments we have received to date.


With the support of the Parish Council, Martin Hawksworth has set up a volunteer rota to help villagers who find themselves quarantined or self isolating at home.

If you find that you have difficulty with shopping etc and need help, please contact Martin Hawksworth on 01509 568793 or email martinhawksworth1382@gmail.com and we will put you in touch with a volunteer.

We already have a list of volunteers; if you would like to add your name, please contact Martin.

Cycling and Walking Strategy

Posted: Mon, 01 Feb 2021 11:26 by Vicky Roe


Cycling & Walking Strategy (CaWS) developmentWork is now in progress to develop a Cycling and Walking Strategy (CaWS) which aims to help more people to make more sustainable travel choices, including increasing the number of journeys by cycling and walking. This will bring benefits in terms of creating healthier communities, improving air quality and reducing congestion and carbon emissions. More »

To inform development of the CaWS, an online survey has been launched www.leicestershire.gov.uk/cycling-and-walking-survey asking for people's views on how they currently travel, what deters them from cycling and walking, and what improvements could be made which would encourage them to make more journeys by cycling or walking in the future.

The survey runs for 6 weeks (Wednesday 27th January to Wednesday 10th March). » Less

Flooding - Be prepared

Flooding - Be prepared

Posted: Tue, 19 Jan 2021 10:14 by Vicky Roe


There are currently weather warnings in place for Leicestershire with more heavy rain forecast that could cause localised flooding. We're encouraging our communities to be prepared and alert to this possibility, and not to wait until more rain arrives to prepare for flooding. More »

Our webpage contains useful information for residents about preparing for flooding, where to purchase flood defence resources such as sandbags from, and links to specialist flooding websites such as the Environment Agency.

As ever, we will have some sandbags available for collection only at our Coalville recycling depot, should flooding arrive. However, residents should be encouraged to prepare themselves and not rely on collecting this emergency stock of sandbags at the last minute.

Details of how to contact us should these sandbags be needed are available on the webpage above. » Less
