The PCC and the Chief Constable are shopping for your views

Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach and Deputy Chief Constable Rob Nixon will be hoping to hear what matters to people in Blaby when they take their joint roadshow to Waitrose tomorrow (Wednesday 5 September).

Members of public will have the opportunity to meet both the PCC and the Deputy Chief Constable plus PC Kal Uppal from the Blaby Neighbourhood Team.

They will be invited to share their experiences with those setting policing priorities and give their views on crime and public safety.

The event is being held at Waitrose in Johns Court, Lutterworth Rd, Blaby between 2.00pm and 4.00pm.

Public feedback is vital to both the PCC and senior officers as they seek to meet the policing needs and expectations of different communities.

The feedback they receive helps to influence where resources are allocated.

Willy Bach said: “These events give members of the public to give the Deputy Chief Constable and me their views on policing in the area.

“They are always well-attended and is a great opportunity for a real two-way conversation. We all learn something.

“Rob and I will be around throughout the afternoon to chat to people and talk about local concerns. It’s a really great chance for us to hear what really matters to people and what needs to be done to help. If you are in the area please, pay us a visit!”

Three events for Growth Plan Consultation

Exhibitions have been arranged within the District of Blaby to give residents more detail on the Strategic Growth Plan.

Three separate events have been arranged, with information and officers available to answer questions about the draft plan, which has been developed by a partnership formed by Leicester City and Leicestershire County councils, the seven local borough and district authorities and the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP).

Events will be hosted on the following days and locations:

  • Tuesday 27th February,
    2pm-9pm, Council Chamber, Blaby District Council,
    Desford Road, Narborough, LE19 2EP
  • Thursday 1st March,
    4pm-8pm, Whetstone Parish Council,
    Cemetery Road, Whetstone LE8 6LL
  • Monday 19th March,
    4pm-8pm, Sapcote Pavilion,
    Hinckley Road, Sapcote, LE9 4FL

The Strategic Growth Plan puts forward proposals for the new housing and transport improvements that would be needed to attract jobs and investment to Leicester and Leicestershire from now until 2050.

The final version of the plan will provide strategic direction and help shape the Local Plans that the city, borough and district councils are or will be preparing or reviewing.

It will also be used to support bids for Government funding to deliver the infrastructure needed to support growth.

At the end of the consultation period, responses on the Draft Plan will be considered and a final version of the Plan will be prepared during 2018.

The final version of the Plan will be used as a framework for preparing Local Plans.

Together with the Strategic Transport Plan and Local Industrial Strategy, the Strategic Growth Plan will be used as a bidding document to secure funding for essential infrastructure and services in the area
