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 >>

Leicestershire Local Access Forum - Your local footpaths

A research project is being initiated by the Leicestershire Local Access Forum. Leicestershire has a good network of footpaths, not all however fully registered and protected and those not recognised as public by the highway authority could cease to exist on January 1st 2026. There are missing links in the official network, some walked today but others not evident on the ground. The project is to identify such routes in Leicestershire which are still, or could be, of public benefit, and prepare the necessary claim based on historic evidence that they are indeed a highway, and who is entitled to use them. Finding such evidence means checking Historic Maps, Enclosure Awards, Tithe Maps, 1910 Inland Revenue Valuation Maps, Railway and Canal Plans, Estate Maps, and even Sale Particulars for individual properties. The Access Forum is building a library of digital records which will be made available to researchers, along with lists of useful websites to allow much research to be carried out at home but visits to the county record office can help.

The project has the full backing, with financial support, of Leicestershire County Council and various user groups to pursue these aims, but the task is too immense for their limited resources. Any involvement, however small, can help and parishes in their own records may find references to footpaths and bridleways which could be the key to a full research exercise.

A meeting has been arranged when anybody at all interested can come along and learn more without any commitment. The meeting is at 7.30 at Park House, home of Glenfield Parish Council (Stamford Street, LE3 8DL) on November 6th. If you wish to come along and see if you wish to get involved you will be most welcome. It would be helpful if you could notify us in advance of numbers, but pre-booking is not essential.

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

Rural Housing Needs Survey
