Winner of many Britain in Bloom awards and well known for its characterful Market Place, interesting shops and popular eateries, Market Bosworth is a small market town that can trace its history back to a settlement in the Bronze Age. The Battle of Bosworth took place to the south of the town in the village of Upton in 1485. If you take a walk around the town you will find shields and Tudor roses as well as street nameplates decorated with Henry VII's dragon and Richard III's boar in recognition of the Battle. There are also three schools and three churches and with the Country Park, Water Park and Battlefield Line Railway within walking distance there is plenty to do for all ages.

Have your say on a proposed new approach to highways maintenance
Leicestershire County Council has launched a consultation on the new proposed Highways Draft Asset Management Policy and Draft Strategy. Last year Leicestershire County Council asked residents for their views on how it carries out the management of its highway assets. Following feedback, a draft highways asset management policy and draft strategy documents have been written and the council is now seeking views on these draft plans. More »
Proposals included in the new policy and strategy include:
- Prioritising high risk repairs when responding to highway defects. This may mean other repairs could take longer than before, but Highways will be clear about timescales
- Focussing on planned maintenance work to help slow down the deterioration of roads
- Preventative work will be 'risk based' and determined on how roads are 'categorised' in a new classification of highways
- Discussing with parish councils opportunities for their involvement in local maintenance, such as grass cutting and the maintenance for trees, flower and shrub beds
- Introducing a targeted approach to gully cleansing, which will help improve service levels
- Keeping winter maintenance, such as gritting, at current service levels.
The consultation begins on Monday 30th January and closes on Sunday 26th March. The consultation is available on the link https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/have-your-say/current-consultations/have-your-say-on-proposed-highways-maintenance-changes.Feedback from this consultation will be considered by the council's cabinet in the summer, when it considers adopting the proposed policy and strategy.For general enquiries or comments about this consultation phone 0116 305 0001 or email HighwaysConsultation@leics.gov.uk » Less
