Following Leicestershire County Council's decision to fully fund 16 main and shopping centre Libraries and for the remaining 36 Libraries, including Braunstone Town Library, to invite communities to take over the running of these facilities, Braunstone Town Council has consulted with the Town's Citizens' Advisory Panel on Thursday 4th December on potential options for the Library Service. The Citizens' Advisory Panel supported a proposal to create a combined public services facility for the Library and Braunstone Customer Service Shop. These proposals will be presented to an Extraordinary Meeting of Policy and Resources Committee on Wednesday 17th December at 7.30pm at Braunstone Civic Centre.
Access Bridge over M1
LATEST: Construction of the access bridge over the M1 between Thorpe Astley and Lubbesthorpe is now likely to commence in the New Year. Exhibitions on the scheme are now likely to take place in December, which will provide information on how any impacts on residents will be minimised. Braunstone Town Council will advise of dates as soon as further information is received from Leicestershire County Council and Blaby District Council.
The County Council, District Council and developer are currently finalising legal agreements, once this is completed a timetable for the construction can be confirmed. Construction will not commence until after the public exhibition has been held and the construction is expected to take around 18 months to complete.
The previously boarded-up property, 3 Narborough Road South, that had once been a beacon for vandals, squatters and rats, has been brought back into use. The house was compulsory purchased by Blaby District Council in June this year and sold to local developers Teresa and Nathan Evans. The couple who own Brown and Green ltd have since refurbished the house and new tenants have moved in.
Did you walk along the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue prior to flood alleviation works in 2013?
During the flood alleviation works in June 2013, access to the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue was closed and since then the landowner has kept the footpath gate locked.
If you regularly used this route we need your help so we can provide enough evidence of its use to reopen the route for future use by the community.
