Have your say

We live in a democracy!

It’s no good complaining and sitting back saying it’s someone else’s fault. We live in a democracy and there are many ways that we as individuals can influence the way our local and national government and services are run. When considering new legislation or changes to services they supply central and local government are obliged to ask the opinion of people who may be affected. Opinions are generally sought by way of “consultation” exercises and there are usually several going on at any time. Take a look at list of current LCC consultations >>

The 2018 Boundary Review - Initial proposals for new Parliamentary constituency

The independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has published proposals to reduce the number of Parliamentary constituencies across England and to make them more equal. The proposals are available on-line at where you can view and make comments.
To see the changes enter your postcode to get a map of proposed boundaries. Click on the Boundaries tab top left and select "existing constituencies" and set labels to on.

There is also a public hearing on 27th and 28th October where you can have your say in person. Venue: Opulence Suite, Cathedral Quarter Hotel, 16 Saint Mary's Gate, Derby. As it is expected that these hearings will be busy, the BCE are recommending that anyone wishing to speak should book a slot. All bookings can be made online.

These proposals relate solely to the parliamentary constituency boundaries used to elect Members of Parliament. They do not change any district ward boundaries and all ward member seats will be unaffected and remain in North West Leicestershire.

The consultation finishes on Monday 5 December 2016.

Local Plan Consultation

The District council is preparing a new Local Plan which will set out where development should take place over the next 15 to 20 years. They held a public consultation fom 28 September to 30 November inviting comments from all members of the public, businesses and organisations in NW Leicestershire. This is an important document which will be used to direct planning decisions which may affect you. The consultation is now closed and the council will collate all the feedback and look at whether any changes need to be made to the plan. Further details are available at


Purple Flag Accreditation for Ashby

The Purple Flag Accreditation Scheme was launched in October 2009 by the Association of Town Centre Management in association with partners in central and local government, the professions, police, business and industry. Just as the Blue Flag is an indicator of a good beach, Purple Flag is the indicator of where to go for a good night out. Ashby de la Zouch has a variety of restaurants, bars, traditional pubs, a theatre, nightclubs and churches which host a variety of entertainment events. NWLDC feel that this should be celebrated and a way of doing this is to apply for Purple Flag Accreditation for the town.

As part of the process NWDLC must undertake a perception survey and would like to gather as many responses as possible from people who visit Ashby. The survey is at
