North West Leicestershire Local Plan – Proposed Modifications Consultation

You may recall that North West Leicestershire District Council has previously consulted you in respect of the Council's emerging Local Plan which will set out the planning framework for the district up to 2031.

Following the Examination hearing sessions held in January and March 2017, Mr Brian Sims BSc CEng MICE MRTPI, the Independent Planning Inspector appointed on behalf of the Secretary of State, has requested that the Council now undertake consultation on a number of Main Modifications required to make the Plan sound in the light of new documentary evidence provided since the Plan was submitted for examination. This is without prejudice to the Inspector's ultimate conclusions and recommendations on the Plan and whether there will be any further hearings after the public consultation. Full details of the consultation can be found on the Council's website by visiting the local plan page. More »

The consultation period runs from 12 June 2017 to 24 July 2017.

If you require any further information please call 01530 454676 or e-mail planning.policy@nwleicestershire.gov.uk.

Your Sincerely,

Ian Nelson

Clearing Plants Away

Clearing Plants Away

It's that time of year again when a combination of warm weather and gentle rain(!) makes everything in the garden grow like mad.

I love seeing the fresh greens of the trees and the white blossoms of elder and hawthorn, the pinks of sweet chestnut and all other colours in between.

Gardens are all blooming and now the fear of frost has completely gone – hmm hmmm – all those multi colours
of bedding plants are putting in an appearance. More »

What is not so good to come across though, is the abundance of weeds and nettles and brambles that are making an appearance along the pavements of
Diseworth. If your property abuts the pavement and there are weeds growing that are starting to encroach over the somewhat narrow in places footpath, then can I please ask that you remove them as soon as possible. You actually
have a duty to do this, to keep the path open to all, and to make it safe to walk along without being attacked by triffids like plants!

The same goes with hedges and over hanging shrubs and prickly bits. It is very inconvenient to be poked in the eye or attacked at knee level by an obtrusive piece of plant that would be far better behaved if it were kept within the
bounds of its property.

Thanking you all in advance, and I expect everyone to be out with shears, weed killer and secateurs at the double. :)

What is a Parish Council?

What is a Parish Council? Why do we have one? What do they do for me, as a villager? How do they work? Where do they get their money from? Are the councillors three headed monsters?
