A local Councillor is updating residents of a Whitwick estate of County Council proposals to improve footpaths in the area.
County Councillor for Whitwick, Leon Spence, says 'Leicestershire County Council have scheduled footpath improvements for Leicester Road, Whitwick for this autumn.
'I have been made aware of concerns about the state of paths around St Bernard's Road and Beaumont Road. Highways officers will be carrying out inspections and I will be holding a meeting on site with district councillors and county council staff in the coming weeks to reiterate the need for safe pavements in the village and to insist that improvements are scheduled as a matter of priority.
'I would particularly be interested to hear from local residents who have suffered from slips, trips and falls on dangerous footpaths in the village.'
