Secure Parking at Station

Members may have noticed that there is now some secure parking towards the north of Loughborough station.

Access is controlled by an electronic key fob which lasts a “lifetime” and can be purchased for £10 at the station ticket office.

Identification such as a driving licence is required. We understand that the fob also provides access to similar facilities at Leicester and Derby.

A pump and tools are also available within the structure.


Establishing Bridleway past Mucklin Wood

Stephen Tipping, Access Officer, Environment and Transport Department at Leicestershire County Council is endeavouring to establish that the track between Woodthorpe and Beaumanor should be designated as a bridleway under Section 53 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

If you can provide any evidence in support of this application please contact him at or telephone him on 0116 305 7084 or write to him at County Hall, Glenfield. Leicestershire LE3 8RJ. Simply indicating how long you have used the route would be helpful.

Currently the route is designated as a public footpath, although it is used by many cyclists. Once formally designated a bridleway we can work for it to be improved as part of the local cycle network.

Please suggest that the bridleway avoids Mucklin Lodge, a private house, and instead uses the paths created for the Grange Park Development leading from Haddon Way/Highland Drive to the NE of Mucklin Wood .

Comments need to be submitted by 12th August 2016.
