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

"DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL 2016"

Date of Release: Mon 6th June, 2016

The "Download Festival 2016" is to be held on the south fields at the Donington Race Circuit, Castle Donington.

The musical performance times for the three-day open-air Concert are from 13:00 hours to 23:00 hours on Friday 10th June 2016 to Sunday 12th June 2016.

Camping facilities are to be provided and these will be available from mid-day on Wednesday 8th June 2016 to mid-day on Monday 13th June 2016. More »

Both the open-air musical performances and the campsite are subject to a licence issued by the District Council and numerous controls have been duly imposed. The Council will be undertaking monitoring during the event to ensure licence conditions are complied with.

Noise Control

On Thursday 9th June there will be a sound propagation test. The Council will be in attendance and this is anticipated to take place between 5.30pm – 7.30pm.

The District Council will be monitoring noise levels throughout the event as in previous years with fixed monitoring equipment located in nearby villages. In addition roaming noise levels will be taken by an officer with a hand held device.

Should any resident consider the noise levels to be unacceptable they are asked to contact the council on 01530 454789. Resident concerns will be logged and communicated to the event organiser and during the event in order to take any steps to minimise disturbance.

Traffic

Despite a comprehensive traffic management plan being agreed unfortunately due to the sheer number of people attending the event, disruption to the road network is inevitable at certain times. The peaks are expected to be 8am to midday on Friday and 21:30 to 23:30 on Saturday and Sunday evening when the event closes. The highest volume of traffic coming away from the festival will be between 22:00 and 02:00 on Sunday /Monday and 8am to midday on Monday 13th. A one-way system will be in place directing traffic away from the site on Sunday 20:00 and 02:00 and on Monday from 9am if deemed to be required. These timings for the one-way system could change, a decision will be made at the time based on the live road conditions. Introducing the one-way system on the Monday will be a last resort.

Our civil enforcement staff will be out patrolling to ensure that the parking and no waiting restrictions are adhered to.

CHANGE OF VENUE

SUPERBIKE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP PRE-EVENT EXTRAVAGANZA SWITCHES TO DONINGTON PARK CIRCUIT

THE STARS OF THE MOTUL FIM SUPERBIKE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WILL BE BASED OUTSIDE THE DONINGTON COLLECTIONS MUSEUM, WHERE THERE WILL BE FAMILY ACTIVITIES AND RIDER Q&AS. WORLD SUPERBIKE LEGEND CARL FOGARTY WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE, AS WILL THE OTHER CONFIRMED RIDERS, INCLUDING ALEX LOWES AND SYLVAIN GUINTOLI.

Due to overwhelming demand, it has been necessary to move the pre-event for the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, scheduled for Sunday 22 May, to Donington Park circuit itself. More »

The initial plan was for a parade and presentation to take place in Castle Donington village, but unprecedented spectator levels means the event has had to be moved to an area with greater capacity. Therefore a new event will take place at Donington Park on the same day, incorporating a meet and greet session with some of the leading names of the Superbike World Championship as well as entertainment and bike displays. The parade will not now take place.

The new event will be based outside the Donington Collections museum, where there will be family activities and rider Q&As. World Superbike legend Carl Fogarty will still be in attendance, as will the other confirmed riders, including Alex Lowes and Sylvain Guintoli.

Donington Park Sporting Director Bob Adams commented: "While it's regrettable that the parade into the village won't now be able to take place, we are delighted at the amount of people who have expressed interest in the event, and are now planning to make it an even bigger preview for World Superbikes. It'll be an afternoon of fun for all the family and a great way to kick start our preparations for the only UK round of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship."

Castle Donington Parish Council Chairman Shaun Ambrose-Jones commented: "Although we anticipated a good local response, we didn't expect a nationwide one. Fantastic though this is, it was realised that the event would have to move somewhere larger to properly accommodate it, most obviously Donington Park itself. The Parish Council will still be involved and it is hoped that many of the visitors will still sample our village centre, but for public safety and security, the meeting with the stars will now be on the museum garden at Donington Park."

The event will start at the same 1pm time on 22 May as originally scheduled, and entry will be free of charge.

Event Details

The Forbidden Forest Festival is taking place on 1 May at Donington Park. The Forbidden Forest brings a mix of electronic music such as bass music, house and

tech house. The event will be played across three stages, holding a host of artists and will operate from 12.00 to 00.00hrs. Up to 5,000 people will be in attendance.

Following some residents being affected by noise from the Zoo Project festival event in 2013, the council has been working with the event organiser to develop and agree an event management plan. More »

Together we've agreed the following to further reduce the likelihood of residents being disturbed by unreasonable noise levels.

  • The event organiser has appointed a professional noise specialist
  • The noise specialist will be monitoring noise levels at locations within and surrounding the site
  • The sound systems will be designed and set up in such a way as to minimise noise impact to residents
  • The organisers will make changes to the orientation of amplification equipment to reduce the likelihood of noise disturbance
  • The sound system will be designed to limit rear projection of low frequency sound to the rear of the stages
  • All music from stages will cease at 00.00hrs

Resident telephone number – 01530 454545

The council will be monitoring the noise levels during the event. If residents feel they are experiencing unreasonable levels of noise during the event, they can call our 24 hour emergency call centre on 01530 454789. This is an emergency response service – we are advising residents not to call this number simply to report that they can hear noise from the event. All resident concerns will immediately be passed onto the event organiser, on site. A noise consultant will investigate the complaint and if noise levels are deemed unacceptable, immediate action will be taken by the event organiser to reduce the levels of the noise. This will be through formal requests by consultants to the sound engineers and event manager.

Alternatively if residents wish to report their concerns after the event has finished they can contact us by calling 01530 454545 or emailing environmental.protection@nwleicestershire.gov.uk or licensing@nwleicestershire.gov.uk » Less
