Leicester Lockdown extension – Blaby District Council update



A map of the local Leicester Lockdown


Following last night’s announcement, we know that some parts of the district will be affected by the Leicester lockdown.    Last night’s speech can be found at www.gov.uk/government/speeches/local-action-to-tackle-coronavirus

The areas in the district affected by the Leicester Lockdown are:

  • Braunstone Town (including Fosse Park)
  • Glenfield
  • Glen Parva
  • Leicester Forest East (the area east of the M1)
  • Thorpe Astley

The red line on the map marks the area affected by the Lockdown.  Residents and businesses clearly outside the red line can continue as normal.  Those inside the red line will need to follow local lockdown restrictions:-

– Pubs, restaurants and hairdressers will not open as planned this Saturday and shops allowed to open on 15th June will have to close again from today.
– Make only essential journeys and stay home as much as you can if you are in this area.
– Schools to close from Thursday
– The relaxation of shielding measures planned for 6 July cannot take place

Information will also be available on the Leicestershire County Council website. They will also have a postcode checker available for anyone living within, or close to the ‘red line’ shown in the map.

We are awaiting further detail and clarification, and will update this page when we have more information.
