Hoton Parish Council News – January 2018

Defibrillator for Hoton
A working group, led by Mark Gane, have managed to raise enough funds to purchase a defibrillator for Hoton. The Parish Council would like to thank the working group who have worked hard to raise awareness of the issue and to raise the funds required. We look forward to the installation of the unit in the village soon.

Broadband Equipment Cabinet
A contractor for BT Openreach have notified Charnwood Borough Council of their intention to site a 'DSLAM equipment cabinet' for provision of fixed-line broadband, on Prestwold Lane, near to the junction with Old Parsonage Lane. Due to the nature of the development they do not need to apply for permission, just to notify the planning authority. The Parish Council have contacted the contractor and BT Openreach asking for further information regarding the new cabinet - the chosen location is near to an existing BT access point and it will serve the residences along Prestwold Lane; these properties are among the last few in the County to be able to have superfast broadband.
The information can be found on Charnwood Borough Council's planning portal: https://portal.charnwood.gov.uk/Northgate/PlanningExplorerAA/ApplicationSearch.aspx

Hoton Parish Council News – November 2017

Speed Survey
The speed of traffic travelling through Hoton has long been a concern of residents, and therefore, of the Parish Council. Whilst this is the responsibility of Leicestershire County Council, their funds are allocated to higher priority areas, so the Parish Council continues to take what action it can to address this issue. Earlier in the year, the Parish Council commissioned a speed survey to be conducted on the three main entrances and exits to Hoton; Loughborough Road, Rempstone Road and Wymeswold Road. This survey captured the speeds of vehicles travelling in both directions at these locations over a period of a week and has produced some interesting and useful data. The Parish Council can use this data as a baseline for the speed of traffic as well as to identify priority areas. A graphic showing the headline figures can be found on our website at:
