The Community House was developed through the Crime & Disorder Partnership. The project was launched in September 2001 with the initial funding coming from the Home Office, county and borough council.

The aim of the project is to work with local residents and youth, encouraging them to become involved in community projects and activities, helping to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and by working together to encourage a sense of pride back into the area.

  • Chris Williams

    This will turn our lovely village into a town like Hinckley.

    • robsmith

      When the population of our “lovely village” reached 10,000 lost souls several years ago it was reclassified as a “Town”.

  • Pontillius

    Surely this development wont be just 1700 dwellings. There will have to be other facilities, i.e., a new school, a park, shops, offices, a mosque, perhaps a community centre, public toilets, a big car park, and a supermarket.
