    On Tuesday 5th June 2018 the Customer Services/Reception facilities at Braunstone Civic Centre will be closed 9am – 5pm due to staff training.  Town Council staff will be attending a Delivering Customer Service Excellence training course to ensure that we are providing the best customer service to our residents and customers.

    Due to the closure of the Customer Service facilities we will be unable to take payments for Blaby District Council, process queries on district and county council services etc. or provide our normal customer service facilities on this day.

    If you have any queries please contact the Customer Service Advisors at the Centre, telephone 0116 2890045 or enquiries@braunstonetowncouncil.org.uk

    Braunstone Town Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.

  • Footpath from Watergate Lane to Staplehurst Avenue


    Access to Footpath from Watergate Lane to Staplehurst AvenueIn February 2014, residents raised concerns with the Town Council that the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue had been closed.  This was not an official right of way; however, the Town Council agreed to pursue a “Definitive Map Modification Order” in order that the path be officially recognised as a right of way, since it had been used as such for over 20 years.  

    Residents provided evidence that there had been public access across the area of open land and over 30 such pieces of evidence were submitted, along with the Town Council’s application, to Leicestershire County Council. 

    Leicestershire County Council have confirmed that an order will be made, subject to a period of public notice for objections running until 1st June.   Should no objections be received, the order will be confirmed in June.

    To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War One, individuals and groups are joining together to create a Cascade of Poppies.
    Local crafters are creating craft poppies which, when fixed to a mesh, will cascade down an exterior wall at Braunstone Civic Centre. The cascade will then flow out along the ground up to and around the Memorial Stone in the garden at the Centre on Kingsway, Braunstone Town. The community aim to make 14,177 poppies to commemorate each of the Leicestershire men who died as a result of the conflict.
    All types of craft poppies are needed (except card or paper – the display will be outside in November…) and we would welcome anyone to join us, whether you want to make one poppy, a dozen or more, and perhaps to tell us their stories of their relatives who lived during World War One. The group also wants anyone who wishes to donate red knitting wool, fabric or any camouflage type netting to please get in touch. Call 0116 2992192 or email: editor@braunstonelife.co.uk
