Leicestershire County Council has been reviewing its current Bus Service Policy which supports contracted local bus services and taxi bus type services (Demand Responsive Transport). This work is necessary to contribute towards the £74 million savings the Council has to make over the next four years by reducing bus service support by £750,000 over the next two years.

The service alterations are proposed following a Scrutiny Panel's review and recommendations for a new Public Transport Support Policy in Leicestershire. Details of this can be found online at www.leics.gov.uk/transportconsultation, from where you will be able to access the consultation leaflets relating to proposed changes to services in your area. More »

We are also inviting responses on the proposed policy changes and these comments can be made by visiting our website at www.leics.gov.uk/transportconsultation, or a hard copy can be requested by phone on 0116 305 0002 or by email to publictransportpolicy@leics.gov.uk. » Less

Have your say on green spaces

People are being urged to have their say on the green spaces they would like to see protected.

The county council wants to hear from people about their favourite spots, whether they are parks and meadows or large green wedges between towns. It is launching an online map, to make consultation easier.

County council leader David Parsons said: We all have our favourite green spaces in Leicestershire, whether it’s a village green or a woodland. Now is the time to speak up and help to protect them for future generations.
The council and its partners want to know local people’s views on their green spaces, to guide our future decisions.
The information gathered will also help communities to develop their own neighbourhood plans.” More »

The council launched the idea because the Government’s localism policy aims to give local communities a greater say on planning decisions affecting their areas. Ministers are also proposing to create a new valued green spaces” designation.

Last year, the council asked parish councils to identify which green areas should be protected. Now, it is encouraging the general public to express their views.

At the moment, Leicestershire has green wedges around Leicester, Loughborough, Hinckley and Coalville. Residents have been campaigning for stretches of countryside, including green wedge areas between Coalville and Whitwick and around Charnwood, to be protected.

There are two ways to make your views known:
•Attend your local community forum meeting before the end of March – there will be sessions on green spaces at each one.
•Make your comments using our interactive, online map

The interactive map gives people a chance to take part from the comfort of their own home or with help at their local library. They can enter a postcode to find an area of interest, zoom in and select a particular place, and answer questions about it

Further details are available at www.leics.gov.uk/greenspaces.

Have your say at the next Coalville Community Forum on 16th February 2011, 6pm at Castle Rock High School. » Less

The purpose of the grant is to help service providers working with vulnerable people receiving Adult Social Care services in Leicestershire to develop towards the new person-centred market. The money can be used for pretty much anything, capital and revenue, providing that the project is helping to develop your organisation as a provider of services for this group of people. The grant is open to the VCS and the private sector but is on a very tight timescale. The last date for applications is in February 2011 and all projects must have started by March. More »
