Borough Street Closure

Proposed road closure of Borough Street by Leicestershire County Council

It has come to the attention of the Parish Council, that Leicestershire County Council has NOT advised you of the road closure for this SUNDAY 18 JUNE 2017, therefore, it has taken the decision to advise you itself.

The Parish Council wrote to you on 4 May advising that there was going to be a road closure for up to five days to facilitate carriageway repairs on Borough Street. At this point, the LCC advised the Parish Council that residents would receive a letter and advance notice boards would be displayed two weeks prior to the actual works being undertaken. More »

If you have any questions or concerns please direct these to, with a copy to the Parish Council:

Jackie Cross, Network Co-ordinator, LCC

Tel: 0116 305 2098

Mobile: 07977 016064


Unfortunately, the closure and advertising of it, is beyond the control of the Parish Council and it will be raising concerns about the need and method for advising residents and businesses accordingly. » Less

Heightened armed patrols in crowded places

Issued on 4/6/17 at 4:33 p.m.

There is to be an immediate increase in the visibility of armed officers on patrol at events and crowded spaces in Leicestershire.

The decision follows the terrorist attacks in London last night (Saturday 3 June) and the Prime Minister's confirmation that the General Election will take place as planned this Thursday.

The Force is actively reviewing its operational plans to police the Election and will, if necessary, increase security at polling stations.

And a number of key locations and events will be earmarked for additional armed and unarmed patrols in the coming two weeks. More »

The decisions were taken at a meeting this afternoon by Assistant Chief Constable Rob Nixon, who is leading the Force's operational response to last night's incident.

He said: "Whilse the national threat level remains at 'severe', we have assessed and will continue to review the situation and will take whatever steps are necessary and proportionate to maintain public safety.

"We will continue to deploy armed officers in key locations but this primarily to provide visible reassurance and to enable officers to respond quickly and effectively in the unlikely event of any incident.

"I must stress there is no intelligence that is specific to a threat in Leicestershire.

"We cannot, and will not, let such appalling attacks cause friction within our communities or stop us living our daily lives. The community cohesion that exists in Leicester, in Leicestershire and in Rutland is something we are all rightly proud of and celebrate, and we must rally around one another.

"We must remain vigilant. I ask people to be aware of their surroundings and the individuals around them, and look out for signs that someone may be acting strangely and out of character. These could be signs that they are considering committing a criminal act, and we need to hear from anyone with such concerns."

The Metropolitan Police has set up a casualty bureau for anyone concerned about a relative who may have been in or around London Bridge or the Borough of Southwark last night. It is 0800 0961 233.

The Met has also asked that anyone who has images or film of last night's incidents to pass those to police by uploading it at www.ukpoliceimageappeal.co.uk.

If you have information about possible terrorist activity, call the police anti-terrorist hotline: 0800 789 321.

You can also call Leicestershire Police on 101 to report anything that you consider suspicious or connected with terrorism. » Less

Hub Update
Following the purchase of the Tudor Hotel in November the parish council submitted on the 9th February, an application for change of use and a planning application to make alterations to the building. With prior consultation with conservation, licensing, and planning officers from NWLDC it was hoped that this application would move forward quickly. Unfortunately this was not to be. LCC Highways had some concerns over the use of the car park for a Farmers Market for one Saturday per month. LCC requested that University of Leicester Archaeological Services carry out a desk top study of the site to identify the likelihood that the development would uncover any significant archaeology. After consultation with NWLDC the PC used the delay to extend the planning application to include new windows and a possible 6m extension to the function room. The University of Leicester Archaeological Services study is now complete and a site meeting with LCC Highways hopefully has allayed their concerns over the Farmers Market. The new planning application will now be submitted next week so we should have all permissions within the next 8 weeks. In the meantime the PC is continuing to produce designs, drawings and specifications in preparation to go to tender to point a developer assuming the planning application is approved. With no additional delays we expect completion in November 2017. More »

Critical Threat Level

Dear Residents,

You are most likely aware via the news of the increased threat to national security with regards to terrorism and as a consequence this is an email to inform you that the UK National Security Terrorism Threat Level has been increased from Severe to Critical.

This means that the UK has moved from 'an attack is highly likely' to 'an attack is expected imminently'.

Threat levels are designed to give a broad indication of the likelihood of a terrorist attack.

  • LOW means an attack is unlikely.
  • MODERATE means an attack is possible, but not likely
  • SUBSTANTIAL means an attack is a strong possibility
  • SEVERE means an attack is highly likely
  • CRITICAL means an attack is expected imminently

Official advice is that people should be alert and not alarmed. More »

Because of this increased threat the following advice is given:

  • Wear ID cards / swipe cards
  • Ensure that all visitors are signed in or accompanied at all times – you are responsible for ensuring the safety of all your visitors
  • Be aware of people 'tailgating' through doors
  • Challenge people you do not know and/ or not wearing appropriate lanyards
  • Ensure you are familiar with the buildings escape routes and assembly points
  • Re visit your Business Continuity Planning

Please be mindful of suspicious packages and familiarise yourself with your Bomb Threat Procedure

Key public messages from Leicestershire Police are:

  • We urge the public to remain vigilant; be alert but not alarmed
  • Leicestershire Police and partners are doing everything possible to help protect the security of our communities, public institutions, critical national infrastructure, businesses and places
  • There will be a visible change to the number of officers on the street, including firearms officers on patrol in areas of high footfall. This is for reassurance purposes
  • The public would expect the police and partners to be doing all they can at this time
  • The public should report any suspicious activity or concern to police – by calling 999 or the Anti-Terror hotline on 0800 789 321. Police depend on information from the public, who can be their eyes and ears, in their efforts to keep us all safe
  • Communities defeat terrorism – we are proud of our diverse and cohesive communities and it is vital that we continue to be united

Castle Donington Parish Council is being updated by the North West Leicestershire Local Resilience Forum and Leicestershire Police and we will keep you fully informed with any developments as they occur. » Less
