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

North West Leicestershire District Council Car Parking Strategy

North West Leicestershire District Council are developing a car parking strategy, to make sure council car parks in North West Leicestershire provide easy access to our towns and villages and a good service to our customers.

They have already done some research into use of our car parks and it shows that the needs are different across the district. For example, they know that people sometimes struggle to find a space in Ashby de la Zouch, while parking spaces are often available in Coalville.

They also want to know what customers need from our parking service. If you don't use our car parks, what might encourage you? If you don't like the service, how might it improve to suit your needs? More »

Please complete this short survey about car parking and give them your opinion (it should take around 5 minutes). The deadline to complete it is Wednesday 31 August.

They hope to have a new parking strategy finalised and in place by next year which will enable them to begin to make positive changes based on your feedback. » Less

Roxhill SRFI Timeline
Roxhill SRFI Timeline

The timeline for the SRFI development through a series of slides.

Timeline 1

Work is due to start in Autumn 2016 and will be a 3-3.5 year programme in various phases.

First sequence of work is due to start in late 2016 with:

 construction of A453 roundabout

 signalised junction with connectivity to Kegworth Bypass when new bridge constructed

 no impact on traffic flows at the start but later there will be 20 weeks interaction that will impact on traffic.

Start on the earthworks, the first element of which unlocks a plateau for up to two million square foot of development. It should be noted that earthworks' activity is weather dependent so the actual timeline may vary according to conditions on site. This work will create surplus material, which will go into the screening bund. More »

Construction of the rail terminal will start on the first day of the project, will be over 1km long and the south end will lie up to 20m below ground level. Completion of the terminal is expected to take approximately two years. The final connection is likely to take a further year.

Off-site works will start round two months into the project. For the first 6-7 months the vast majority of this work will have no impact on traffic flows. J24 improvement works will generally be carried out at night to reduce disruption. Realignment of J24 is expected to take around 12 months and will improve circulatory traffic and relieve congestion.

For the first 6-9 months traffic movements on the development site will be relatively minor and will use the existing farm track off Church Lane. Construction traffic will be banned from using the dual carriageway and must turn left out of the junction.

Timeline 2: 6-9 months commencing Summer 2017

The site access road will have been built by now. The first two plateaus will be ready for building construction to progress. Part of the bund will be complete. The earthworks operation will have moved to the next phase. The rail terminal is still 'red' at this point as it is still being progressed. Off site works are still red and the Kegworth bypass is red as now under construction – expected autumn/winter 2017.

Traffic still follows its current routes in all locations and residents can still access Lockington and Hemington in the usual way. The vast majority of traffic interfaces will occur with the reconfiguration of J24 and is a "necessary evil" as it will reduce pressure on J24. The bridge over the M1 from the A453 towards Ashby Road, Kegworth, will remain in place and, when the Kegworth bypass is completed, will be used by buses and cyclists.

Timeline 3 – Summer 2018

Traffic no longer follows the roundabout onto J24 but takes a new configuration so traffic pressure on J24 is relieved. Highways England is expected to start construction on a smart motorway scheme in Spring 2017. Roxhill is liaising closely with Highways England to ensure this runs smoothly.

Now beginning to look at access, focusing on de-trunking the Southbound A50 carriageway and working on access into Lockington from the north. The northbound bridge will stay and the south bound bridge will be removed. There will be two way access into Lockington.

The railway track has now gone red, which means they will be laying track, ballast, etc.

Timeline 4 – Autumn 2018

The Kegworth bypass is still under construction. Bunding is being constructed and landscaping will go in. Landscaping will be carried out each planting season between November to March following any completed construction.

The railway line is now built but is not yet connected to the Network Rail section. Off-site traffic movements are completed (except for the Kegworth Bypass). Roxhill is still to resolve the exact

sequence of the bypass but will start work in autumn 2017 and hope to complete by the end of 2018.

Timeline 5 –Spring 2019

Area 1 and 2 of the development will be complete and they are now working on Areas 3 and 4. Work progressing on Kegworth bypass, rail head and traffic works.

Timeline 6 – Winter 2019

Everything has now been built except the final Network Rail connection, which Roxhill will have no part in. Current dates from Network Rail for work on this connection is Christmas 2019.

There was discussion on train movements. Roxhill explained that east-bound trains can come into the Roxhill scheme but will require Network Rail to carry out works to improve the gauges. Trains will approach from the west but loop round. Electrification of the Midland Mainline expected around 2022. » Less
