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.

The Parish Council office has now moved to the new Hub.
Congratulations to all the staff at Keller Construction for a great job well done.

The contract for the refurbishment of The Hub was awarded to Keller Construction Ltd an award winning construction company based in Ashby de la Zouch. The work is now in the final snagging stage.

Resident concerns will be logged and communicated to the event organiser during the event so that they can take any steps to minimise disturbance.

Traffic information

Peak times

The event organisers have a comprehensive traffic management plan, but disruption to the road network is inevitable at certain times due to the sheer number of people attending the event.

The peak times for arrivals are expected to be 7am to 2pm on Wednesday 12 June and 8am to 3pm on Friday 14 June.

The highest volume of traffic coming away from the festival will be:

  • Between 10pm and 1am on Saturday 15 / Sunday 16 June and Sunday 16 / Monday 17 June
  • 9am to 1pm on Monday 17 June.

Routes to avoid

At peak times on Wednesday and Friday we would advise avoiding the contraflow area between J24 and J23A of the M1 in both directions and the A453 westbound.

During the peak exit time on Monday 17 June we would advise avoiding the area around J23A of the M1 where possible.

Temporary diversions

Temporary speed limits and clearways / no waiting are in operation from Wednesday 12 to Monday 17 June.

Details can be found on the event organiser website.

Our civil enforcement staff will patrol the area to ensure that the parking and no waiting restrictions are adhered to.
