Fly tipping in Corkscrew Lane

Corkscrew Lane

Despite notices being erected fly tipping is continuing to blight the Parish - especially Corkscrew Lane where there aren't many houses over-looking. The mess pictured above was dumped some time between 18.00pm on 4th July and and 07.30am on 5th. The Parish Council are working with NW Leicestershire District Council and the intention is to install CCTV cameras to try to identify the perpetrators. Fly tipping is a criminal offence but people will continue to do this unless we can increase the risk of them being identified and charged.

If you see anything suspicious call the Police. You can report fly tipping, and other nuisances, directly to NWLDC at

About Coleorton Parish

Coleorton Parish includes the villages of Coleorton, Coleorton Moor, Church Town and Farm Town as well as parts of Peggs Green, Griffydam and Lount. The Parish Plan survey in 2008 found that parishioners felt communication of information throughout the parish was not effective and so a website was set up to address this. The website has now become a centre of information about activities and events in and around Coleorton, local clubs and organisations, a directory for local businesses and services and a platform for people who would like to share their enthusiasm for local history and the environment.
