Our Mission Statement
The Parish Council exists to ensure that, within the resources available, the parish, its environment and local services are maintained to the highest possible standards for citizens, visitors and those who work in Castle Donington. The Parish Council will also provide a focus for civic pride and community spirit, listen, identify and respond to agreed local needs and should help develop a strong, secure, self-reliant and self-confident community.
Following review of Services 120 and 155, these two services have been combined into one – Service 125 – with East Midlands Airport no longer being served.
Since the community engagement events held in October 2019, where details of the intended changes were shared, we have reviewed the comments received.
Please note, it is LCC's duty to consider the provision of passenger transport services for areas not served by alternative commercial bus or rail services, to enable them to access essential facilities and services such as food shopping and primary healthcare. More »
Despite addressing the following issues raised (which will be incorporated into finalised timetables), it will not be possible to meet all journey requirements:
- Last journey from Leicester to Coalville retimed to 17.45 (rather than the proposed 17:30)
- Increased time between arrival and return journey in Coalville – Passengers travelling to Coalville on 10.15 journey from Castle Donington will have increased time in Coalville (from 2 hours to 2 hours 15 mins) before making return journey.
Please see attached, change notice containing finalised timetable for the new 125 service (Castle Donington – Leicester via Coalville & Bradgate Park).
This notice will be displayed on relevant buses and bus stops.
Please note, these service changes will take effect from 24th February 2020. » Less

Update based on information sent to me today(16/01/2020) from the Engineering Manager in charge of the project.
The problem regarding the airport fence has been resolved with the airport dealing with the problem.
The road is complete with the Red Route Lines already done.
The INDEPENDENT Stage 3 Road Safety Audit was carried out in December.
Following the Stage 3 Road Safety Audit the ground workers have been passed the designers response and are programming in the required remedial works/new items. Considering the size of the project there is very little to do. This work should be completed by the end of next week. More »
LCC need to approve the legal documents and they expected to be released by LCC for signature this week. As soon as these are released, they will be circulated for signatures. These need to go to all 3 developers, plus bondsmen and then back to the council for completion. The time allowed for this should be 1 to 2 weeks.
The opening date depends on how quickly LCC approve the legal documents however it is still hoped that it will be open at the end of January 2020.
This is the latest information we have.
