  • Council concerned about HS2 impacts

    North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) confirmed that it is concerned about the impact of the proposed route for HS2 during a meeting of its Full Council on Thursday 17 February 2017.

    The council plans to let the Government know that the impact of the revised route, which is proposed to run to the east of Measham, will have an unacceptable impact on the villages of Packington, Appleby and Measham.

    Despite these concerns, councillors agreed that, in light of further work carried out by experts working on the council’s behalf, it would no longer oppose the principle of the route and will instead work with HS2 Ltd to ensure local people get the most benefit from the new high speed railway.

    The council will insist that the areas of concern are addressed in the detailed planning of the scheme and will adopt a strategy that:

    • Recognises the better access to jobs that HS2 will bring through better connectivity and greater capacity on road and rail networks
    • Works to improve connections from the district to HS2
    • Supports residents and businesses, particularly those who will need to seek compensation and relocate
    • Actively engages with HS2 Ltd. to ensure the district’s views are fully represented.

    Response to the consultation on HS2 route changes

    NWLDC will respond to the consultation on the proposed route changes by 9 March 2017. The council will make three key points:

    1. That it is logical to change the route to follow the A42 to Kegworth and avoid tunnelling under East Midlands Airport, but that the council should be compensated for the loss of developer contributions towards playing fields and amenities due to the loss of planning permissions to the west of Kegworth. In addition, the council will put forward the case that new bridges are needed to make sure the Kegworth by-pass can still go ahead
    2. That the council would have preferred a station to be located either within the district at East Midlands Airport or just outside at the existing East Midlands Parkway. However, as HS2 Ltd has chosen to locate the station at Toton interchange, NWLDC will work to ensure the district benefits from the best possible connectivity with Toton.
    3. That the council cannot agree with the proposed change of route to the east of Measham, as the negative impacts on wildlife, housing, jobs and heritage – in particular the Sir John Moore Foundation near Appleby Magna – are too great. NWLDC will ask HS2 Ltd to reconsider this route change and look at other options around Measham.

    Proactive support for residents and businesses

    NWLDC will offer as much support as possible to residents and businesses in the district that may be affected by the proposed route.

    It has already contacted all businesses that are directly affected by the railway and signposted them to where they can access compensation.

    In addition, the council will support any business that needs to relocate as a result of HS2, with sites within the district being a priority.

    Public protection

    The council has a duty during the construction of the railway to make sure residents are not negatively affected by noise and vibration. It will do this through its existing enforcement powers.

    Once the railway is in operation, the council has no powers with regard to nuisance. It will however, work with HS2 Ltd to focus on acoustic management during design and construction, so that the line has appropriate fencing and bunding to protect local people from noise as much as possible.

    Councillor Alison Smith MBE, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community Services at North West Leicestershire District Council, said: “In November 2016, the Government confirmed changes to its preferred route for Phase 2b of the HS2 rail development.

    “A number of these changes affect the West Midlands to Leeds leg of the route as it passes through North West Leicestershire. We have worked with railway experts to come to a position that means we will work with HS2 Ltd to get the most for our district from this development.

    “We have concerns – particularly regarding the proposed route around Measham and Kegworth - but are hopeful that HS2 Ltd will work with us to address these. Ultimately, we want to protect our district as much as possible and make sure local people have good access to these high speed trains that will help link our country in a more efficient way.”

  • NWLDC to invest across the district and freeze council tax as it sets its budget for 2017/18
    Council tax will be frozen for the eighth year in a row and new council homes will be built for the first time in 26 years following the approval of the 2017/18 North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) budget on Thursday 23 February.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

  • Are you cyber secure?

    People in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are not as secure online as in their homes, according to new statistics out today from government cyber security campaign, Cyber Aware.

    Although 82% of UK households have double locks or deadlocks and 89% have window locks, only 39% of people across the East Midlands follow the latest government online advice to use three random words to create a strong password. On average only 51% regularly download the latest software or app updates as soon as they are available.

    Latest figures from the Office of National Statistics show that cyber crime was one of the most common offences committed in 2016, with an estimated two million cyber crime incidents, compared to 686,000 domestic burglary offences.

    The new National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), advises internet users to choose three random words to create a strong password and download the latest software or app updates.

    A weak password can allow hackers to use victims’ email to access many of their personal accounts, leaving them vulnerable to identity theft and fraud. Software or app updates contain vital security upgrades which protect devices from viruses and hackers.

    The most common reason people in the East Midlands have given for not downloading the latest software updates is that it ‘takes too long’. However, it only takes a few minutes, compared to the time it can take to recover from a cyber hack.

    Sam Hancock, Cyber Protect Officer for Leicestershire Police said: “Protecting our information in the cyber world by using a different strong password on each account, installing software updates and exercising caution when online, should be just as important as putting in place measures to protect our homes and businesses.”

    Paul Wenlock, Head of the Economic Crime Unit at Leicestershire Police said, “Statistics clearly show that the number of people being targeted by criminals online is increasing. Three quarters of all online crime is preventable. By using strong passwords, installing anti-virus software on their computers and phones and downloading software security updates when issued, people can make life difficult for online fraudsters.

    “By taking care of your personal information, thinking about what you are posting on social media and by following these three simple steps you can to protect yourself when online.”

    To help bring the impact of cyber crime to life, Cyber Aware is launching a new film showing victims of cyber crime talking about the effect it has had on their lives. You can view the film here.

    The video, which was filmed in Manchester, includes victims of cyber crime talking about the impact it has had on their lives.

    Alison Marriott, who has been a victim of hacking said: “The whole experience was very distressing. Emails were being sent from my account to my contacts which I had no control over. It caused a great deal of embarrassment as there were lots of phone calls to be made to explain the situation and having to tell people your email has been hacked makes you feel stupid.

    "It was also very inconvenient and took days to sort out - I didn’t realise quite how many passwords I had until I had to change them all!”

    The Cyber Aware campaign (formerly Cyber Streetwise) is funded by the National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) and was launched in 2014, with the objective of providing individuals and small businesses with the knowledge to take control of their cyber security and help protect themselves from cyber criminals.

    Cyber crime is a serious threat to the UK and the Government is taking action to increase public awareness of the risk. The Government will invest £1.9 billion to significantly transform the UK’s cyber security. NCSP will support the aims of the 2016 National Cyber Security Strategy over the next five years and reflects the importance the Government places on robust cyber security for the UK. The NCSC will actively protect the UK from a range of cyber threats and will coordinate responses to cyber security incidents.
