New Trees!

New Trees!

Posted: Tue, 28 Feb 2023 10:37 by Lucy Flavin

The Bottesford Neighbourhood Plan highlights the significance of trees in contributing to the character of the Parish, in supporting biodiversity, improving health and amenity and helping the Parish adapt to the effects of climate change. More »

In collaboration with Leicestershire County Council the Parish Council is pleased to have seen a number of new trees planted in the parish in the past year.

* Verges alongside Nottingham Road (13 Trees)

* Verge alongside Station Road (3 trees)

* An orchard (20 apple trees) at the eastern end of the Village Hall Playing Field

* 10 specimen trees on Jubilee Green

* 3 oak trees planted at the western end of the Village Hall Playing Field

The Council would like to thank Charles Daybell for all of his work in pushing forward this project. We hope that residents enjoy these new trees throughout the seasons and share the councils view that these new trees make a real positive impact to these already well used green spaces. » Less

Dog Waste

Dog Waste

Posted: Tue, 28 Feb 2023 09:56 by Lucy Flavin

The Parish Council is aware of, and shares, parishioners' concerns about dog fouling in the Parish. To encourage dog owners to be responsible and enable them to dispose of waste the Parish Council provides dog bins throughout the parish and has also purchased 34,000 dog waste bags since April 2022. These bags are available for residents to collect from the Parish Office and Bottesford Community Library. Due to the cost we do ask that residents restrict the amount of bags they take to no more than 2 packets (there are 50 bags in each packet). More »

On occasions, dog bins and/or other waste bins can become full. If this is the case the Council would ask that residents take their waste home to dispose of it rather than allow the bins to overflow and in doing so create a health hazard.

The Parish Council is committed to continuing to address the issue of waste of all types around the parish and would like to thank all the responsible dog owners and members of the community who are working with us to solve this problem. » Less
