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

Community Hub

Community Hub

Work on the redevelopment of the Tudor Hotel to a Community Hub is progressing, albeit very slowly.

The reason for this is that the planning permission has stalled due to the County Council insisting that a Desk Top Archaeological Assessment being undertaken and also them insisting on a vehicle count regarding the number of cars in and out of Tanyard Close and for Hillside! Their objections do seem ludicrous bearing in mind the amount of traffic traversing through the village for the large developments happening locally. More »

A display about what is happening will be taking place on May Market and then down at the Co-op store of Trent Lane. » Less
