    The work done by the Conservation Volunteers has helped during the bad weather. The excess water on the park is now flowing into the ditch.

Environmental crime penalties increased

Three fines for environmental offences in the district have been increased after a meeting of Blaby District Council's Cabinet Executive.

The Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) amount for those caught littering and distributing free literature on land without permission has been increased from £75 to £150. The early payment amount has also been increased from £65 to £100.

Graffiti and Fly Posting, which was previously a £75 fine has been upped to £100, with £65 remaining as the early payment amount. The early payment amounts for abandoning a vehicle (£120 to £150) and failing to produce a waste transfer note (£180 to £200) have also been increased. More »

All new charges will be introduced on Friday 01 June.

The increased FPN for littering comes after the introduction of The Littering from Vehicles outside London (Keepers: Civil Penalties) Regulations 2018. The new legislation means registered keepers can be fined for vehicles identified in a littering offence. Previously the person responsible for throwing the litter from the vehicle had to be identified for a fine to be issued.

Councillor Iain Hewson, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Regulatory Services, said: "The increase in these penalties should reaffirm our commitment to tacking environmental crime in our district, particularly those who litter from vehicles spoiling the countryside and costing taxpayers to clean it up.

"We strongly encourage anyone who witnesses littering from a vehicle and any other crime of this nature to report it to our Environmental Health team, who will investigate and take the appropriate action where possible."

Anyone can report environmental crime to Blaby District Council's Environmental Team by calling 0116 272 7555 or email environmental.health@blaby.gov.uk. » Less

Lubbesthorpe school plans approved

Lubbesthorpe school plans approved

The first primary school in New Lubbesthorpe has been approved, with construction set to begin in June.

Blaby District Council approved plans submitted by the Drummond Estate to construct a 420-place, two-form entry primary school required as part of the Section 106 Agreement earlier this month.

The school will be built close to the current development of homes by Beggars Lane and is close to the local centre, which will include shops and other facilities. Is it anticipated to open by September 2019 based on the current dwelling occupation rate at Lubbesthorpe. More »

Once completed, Lubbesthorpe will contain 4,250 homes, as well as a further primary school and a secondary school to be built as the development progresses. Local shops, parks, leisure facilities and industrial units are also planned for the new settlement.

Cat Hartley, Group Manager for Planning, Economic and Community Development, said: "We're pleased to be able to approve these plans for the first primary school in Lubbesthorpe. The development is growing at a rapid rate and by the time the school is completed we expect the first intake of pupils will be ready.

"This also highlights that the infrastructure promised during the application phase is being delivered, which will make Lubbesthorpe a highly desirable and sustainable development."
