PUBLIC TOILET BLOCK

Please be assured that the Parish Council is working extremely hard to try to reopen the toilet block. It is not a straightforward matter especially as we don't have the staff and resources of larger authorities.

The Parish Council has legal obligations as a statutory body to make sure its facilities are safe. The toilets are currently closed for health and safety and insurance reasons because we are unable to meet the requirements for reopening them safely as outlined by government in terms of extra cleaning and social distancing. The facilities, built as they were in the 1960s do not lend themselves to meeting the requirements easily. Furthermore, they are permanently damp and cold even in the hottest weather and with ventilation, which is apparently the perfect breeding ground for Covid-19.

We are continuing to look in to options as to how the facilities may be reopened safely. The Parish Council is as frustrated as members of the public by the problems we are encountering especially as we took them on in the first place to ensure they were not closed permanently. We will continue to try to resolve matters being put before us.

PLAYGROUNDS

The playgrounds at Heath Road and Waterside Mede have been reopened.

PARISH HALL BOOKINGS

For Parish Hall bookings please contact the Benefice Administrator on admin@bosworthbenefice.org.uk or Tel: 01455 817255. Although the Parish Council is based in the building, the Parish Hall actually belongs to St Peter's Church and the full name is St Peter's Parish Church Hall.

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.

The Parish of Market Bosworth includes the village of Far Coton as well as the settlement of Market Bosworth. This website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search engine or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.

Housing Needs Assessment

The Neighbourhood Forum working group of the Parish Council has recently undertaken a review of the Neighbourhood Plan and it was agreed an updated Housing Needs Figure was needed. An independent Housing Needs Assessment was carried out by an external consultancy funded by Locality. The new Housing Needs Assessment shows that our Housing Needs Figure to 2026 is 108 new dwellings. These can readily be accommodated on the designated Station Field site identified in the Neighbourhoood Plan. More »

Also, the Masterplan for this site produced by the landowners in conjunction with the Parish Council and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council has been through an informal consultation process and will shortly be going to formal consultation. The Parish Council will welcome your support to approve the Masterplan for this site once the consultation commences.
