Statement of Effect




Leicestershire County Council proposes make a number of changes to the on street parking provision presently found on these streets. We are proposing to amend the current limited waiting time from 2hrs no return for 4 hours Mon - Sat to 2hrs no return for 1hr Mon – Sat 8am to 6pm. We further propose to increase the on street parking spaces for both disabled and non-disabled drivers. More »

In addition we intend to implement double yellow No Waiting at Any Time Restrictions at junctions and accesses on Borough Street. Further it is proposed that the restricted waiting on Apiary Gate, Clap Gun Street and Dovecote should become no waiting at any time as the road widths here are so narrow that parking on the carriageway would cause an obstruction.

Drawing TM4211/03/2015 shows the proposals.

The proposal is in response to a request made by the Parish Council, who has raised concerns regarding the limited waiting parking operating times and inappropriate parking of vehicles at access points and around the pedestrian island at The Hollow. The proposal will increase and improve the parking arrangements in the town centre to best meet the needs of local residents and business owners and resolve the issues currently being experienced due to obstructive parking.


Park Lane, The Green parish of Castle Donington

Revocation of no loading restrictions

There are currently no loading restrictions on Park Lane near its junction with Bond Gate which prohibit loading on Mon – Sat from 8am – 9.30am and 4pm – 6pm these restrictions are unnecessary as it is unlikely that loading to any of the adjacent properties would occur on a regular basis.

It is therefore proposed that these loading restrictions are removed retaining the no waiting at any time restrictions. » Less

Valley Beat Community based Traffic Operation – Chapter 2

Following consultations with local residents, Community Speed Watch groups and partner agencies the NN43 Valley beat team have recently carried out a the second part of its Traffic Operation dealing with the highlighted issues.

The second week in September saw beat team members PC Underwood and PCSO Bradley out and about on 'Valley' and during an early start on Ashby Road, Kegworth - a 30mph main road through the village which has had electronic speed advisory signs recently erected – five vehicles where stopped and advised for minor breaches and three drivers were reported for excessive speed, all within an hour. It has to be noted that local residents who were walking their children to the local school were grateful that a pro-active approach was being taken to the community led issues. More »

Moving onto Belton and Rempstone Road (next to the phone box) a 40mph limit, around 50 vehicles were checked and it was pleasing to report, all were compliant. However, moving around the corner at the cross roads of Long Street and Gracedieu Road, a vehicle was pulled over for recording a speed in excess of 50mph and duly reported.

An afternoon check in Peggs Green (30mph) two drivers were reported for speed in excess of 40mph and a number of others advised for minor breaches.

Attention was then paid to Hilltop in Castle Donington. With a 30mph limit in place, four drivers were reported for excessive speeds, of which two of these were also reported for not wearing seat belts.

The beat team plan to carry out further Traffic Operations in the future in conjunction with resident led SPEEDWATCH GROUPS, partner agencies and local communities, making the beat a safer place.
