  • 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.

    Click here to find out how to respond to the consultation and to read the proposed orders.



    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
