Changes to speed restrictions
As of 11 February 2013 there is a new 50mph speed limit on the A512 from just beyond the crossroads in the village (The Moor/Lower Moor Road) to beyond Coleorton Hall. Currently, it becomes decontrolled just after the crossroads.
The other thing that parishioners may be interested in is that the current 40mph speed limit on the road into Ashby past Tesco is to become 30mph as you come off the roundabout. It currently becomes 30mph just before the school.
The county council grit main routes when the temperature falls below zero. But weather is unpredictable so don’t assume the road is gritted unless you can see the grit. Also the grit doesn’t always reach across the whole road - especially on wide junctions such as the junction of The Moor / Lower Moor Road and the A512. Check the LCC web site gritting page for further information and tips on winter driving. List of roads which will be gritted when ice or snow is forecast (pdf) >>
2 salt bins have been placed in the parish - at Beaumont Green and Bakewells Lane (A512 end).

Proposed changes to speed restrictions on A512
Changes to speed restrictions in Newbold
There have been some changes to speed restrictions in Ashby Road and Melbourne Road as of 20th August 2012. Look out for new signs!
Vehicle-activated speed sign
The speed sign has now been installed on the Moorlands. It will be moved regularly around the Parish, however we are limited to lampposts LCC have authorised us to use. After various trials the Parish Council purchased the mobile, speed-activated warning sign for use on various roads in the Parish. We don’t have authority to place the signs on the the A511 and A512. It’s a mobile unit which attaches to a lamppost or other post and so can be moved to different areas of the Parish.
Leicestershire Local Transport Plan
The third Leicestershire Local Transport Plan (LTP3) has now been formally approved and adopted by full Council. It is now Leicestershire County Council highways and transportation policy.
