Councillor Mrs Janet Harris

Councillor Mrs Janet Harris

We sadly announce the death of Mrs Janet Harris.

Janet was elected to Sileby Parish Council in 1989, serving as Chairman on two occasions, for three and two years respectively. She was involved in the Soar Valley Liaison Committee from the outset, over thirty years ago, and continued to build links between Sileby and neighbouring villages.

During Janet's time as a Parish Councillor, she was heavily involved with the flooding issues affecting the village. During the floods on Good Friday in 1998 and Christmas Day 1999 Janet helped to fill and distribute sandbags to residents; since then, she continued to press for improvements to the Sileby Brook More »

Janet's consistent willingness to represent Sileby has been outstanding and was demonstrated by her regular and continued attendance at civic and formal occasions, including Armed Forces Services, the Police Commissioner's Multi-Cultural Event, Remembrance Services and Parades and Christmas Carol Services to name but a few. This has spanned her entire period of office and demonstrated Janet's commitment.

Janet endeavoured to promote and represent the village further afield by her involvement with the Loughborough Twinning Association and in particular with Epinal.

In addition to Janet's Parish Council work she was an active member of Sileby Bowls Club, a Borough Councillor for four years, a member of the St George's Society and raised a family, and worked. Her involvement within the community provided insight and representation for many residents, she was sensitive and approachable making sure issues were addressed and where possible resolved.

Janet's thirty-two years commitment to Sileby Parish Council was truly inspirational and enduring. The village is a better place for Janet's continued commitment. » Less

Your help is required for Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) development - public engagement on draft networks

Your help is required for Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) development - public engagement on draft networks

Continuing with our programme of work to inform the Council's approach to providing enhanced cycling and walking facilities in the County, public engagement launches this week asking for people's views on the draft priority cycling and walking networks. These have been developed as part of the ongoing development of the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIP's) for the Loughborough area, and South of Leicester area, which includes Blaby, Oadby and Wigston. More »

As many people as possible are encouraged to have their say on the draft plans by accessing the online map based engagement here: https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/have-your-say/current-engagement/draft-cycling-and-walking-infrastructure-plans

Parish Councils are asked to promote to their local communities this engagement opportunity for people to help shape the priority cycling and walking networks from an early stage.

The engagement runs for 4 weeks (Thursday 20th January to Sunday 20th February) and responses will be considered alongside early feedback already received from local councillors, to help inform the final priority cycling and walking routes to be included in the LCWIP's for these areas.

LCWIP's set out the vision and key priorities for infrastructure improvements in each of the areas, to create attractive, joined-up priority cycling and walking networks, encouraging and enabling people to travel more sustainably. LCWIP's are also key plans in helping us to secure funding to deliver these improvements to cycling and walking routes, including via Government bidding opportunities and from developers.

It is currently anticipated that the LCWIPs will be finalised and presented to the Cabinet for approval in late summer/early autumn. » Less
