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.
